Robert Falcon Scott in full regalia

Adopted in 1921 as originally submitted in 1914 by G.E. Howard, and as labelled on BC-Alberta boundary sheet 26, 1920.

Named after Captain Robert Falcon Scott, CVO, [1868–1912], commander of two British Antarctic expeditions. On the second venture, Scott led a party of five which reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, less than five weeks after Amundsen’s South Pole expedition. A planned meeting with supporting dog teams from the base camp failed, despite Scott’s written instructions, and at a distance of 260 km from their base camp Scott and his companions died.
