December 28, 1912: Waiting for the ship at Cape Evans

–from Tryggve Gran’s diary published as “The Norwegian with Scott“–

“The Terra Nova must have been underway a fortnight now [The ship had left Lyttleton, NZ on 14 December under the command of Commander E. R. G. R. Evans, fully recovered from scurvy and specially promoted for Antarctic service], and if she does not run into heavy pack we’ll see her soon. For a change, the weather has been unpleasant today.”
