”During the Antarctic winter of 1902 and 1903,the officers of the National Ant- arctic Expedition on board the Discovery, among other diversions wherewith to lighten the long and dreary darkness, brought out at monthly intervals a periodical to which they gave the name of The South Polar Times.”
”The South Polar Times, created on a typewriter in 1902, was a monthly newspaper written and compiled by the crew of the ‘Discovery’ on their expeditions to the Antarctic between 1902 and 1911. [Robert F] Scott decided that the crew should produce the newspaper to fill the long dark hours of Autumn. Each 30pp to 50pp edition, of which there was only one produced, described life on the ice, and featured water colours, crew caricatures, poems about penguins and life in the Antarctic.”
