Henry Robertson Bowers Autograph Sold

Henry Robertson Bowers was a lieutenant in the Royal Indian Navy who was selected among the best to join explorer Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition / British Antarctic Expedition. The expedition had scientific goals as well to be the first team to reach the South Pole, but Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen’s team beat them by 5 weeks. Scott’s final group of five to make the last stretch to the pole tragically perished as they attempted to return to their base camp at Cape Evans. Scott was a very methodical planner, however the temperatures encountered on the return to base camp were extreme and unforeseeable. The Bowers Mountains in Antarctica were named in honor of Henry Robertson Bowers.
