CAPTAIN ROYAL NAVY
who with four companions
e.a. wilson, h.r. bowers, l.e.g. oates, e. evans
died march 1912 returning from the south pole
'had we lived i should have had a tale to tell
of the hardihood, endurance and courage
of my companions which would have stirred
the heart of every englishman
these rough notes and
our dead bodies must tell the tale.
