March 10, 1912: The Terra Nova fails to reach the Northern Party

–from Tryggve Gran’s account–

“Before “Terra Nova” stood north for the last time, [Captain] declared that if he succeeded in rescuing Campbell and his party he would, between the 10th and the 15th, attempt to push southwards again as far as necessary to exchange signals.  It’s the 10th today, and we have established a system of watchkeeping though the night.  The air is heavy with snow and we can’t see far.”
