Photograph of the "Terra Nova" in sail, passing through ice and snow. Scott’s ship is seen here held up by the ice pack, with a curiously shaped ’ice bollard’ in the foreground. The Terra Nova was launched in 1884 as a whaling ship. She had sailed to both the Arctic and Antarctic before serving as Scott’s ship in 1910. She survived until 1943 when she was damaged by ice and sank off the coast of Greenland.
Presented to King George V, 1914
