Scott’s Diary: Sunday August 6, 1911

Sunday, August 6.—”Sunday with its usual routine. Hymn singing has become a point on which we begin to take some pride to ourselves. With our full attendance of singers we now get a grand volume of sound.

“The day started out overcast. Chalky is an excellent adjective to describe the appearance of our outlook when the light is much diffused and shadows poor; the scene is dull and flat. In the afternoon the sky cleared, the moon over Erebus gave a straw colour to the dissipating clouds.”
