8 August 1911

From the diary of Tryggve Gran, the Norwegian ski instructor with Scott:

“Ponting and Taylor have announced officially that they will sail home with Terra Nova in 1912.  Otherwise I think the rest rather want to stay on.  We are doing famously, and the spirit of comradeship is ideal.  It will soon be time to write letters.  Spring will bring work, and there won’t be much opportunity for such chores.”
