(London: Collins , 1952).

UNCOMMON. A "Ripping Good Yarn." "Teddy" Evans served as second-in-command on Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated expedition to the South Pole in 1910 1913 and as captain of the expedition ship Terra Nova. Scott offered Evans the position with his second expedition as a means of persuading him to drop plans for his own competing expedition to explore King Edward VII Land. However, it was an uneasy working relationship, as Scott continued to regard Evans as a rival.
Evans was the leader of the last supporting party to accompany Scott to the pole. After hearing from Scott that he was not going to be one of the men making the final push, Evans turned back on 4 January 1912, within 150 miles of the pole, leaving another of his party, Henry R. Bowers, to join Scott's Polar party. Item #25035
