Scott's Hut

This is the hut build by Robert "Best Middle Name Ever" Scott's second expedition. Five men reached the pole by foot from the this starting point on the coast in 1911-12. All five, lead by Scott died on the way back. It took a week before I realized I was staring at this hut everyday from my office window in the JSOC. It didn't look like it was build exactly 100 years ago. In front as well as on the seaside are plaques comemorating the men who sailed on the Discovery, Scott's ship.
