The Great White Silence...
Our miniature sheet commemorates the centenary of Scott’s heroic expedition to the South Pole.We are grateful for the uniquely-qualified contribution of Sir Ranulph Fiennes and to the Scott Polar Research Institute for permission to feature the extraordinary photographs of Herbert Ponting which, in Sir Ranulph’s words, powerfully serve ‘to remind us all of the stark reality of the conditions faced by Scott and his men, the very first human beings to penetrate and learn about Antarctica.’
