Captain Scott/ Nancy Mitford
Early this morning I sat in my kitchen reading Nancy Mitford's account of Captain Scott's last and fatal expedition, to the South Pole. I have very little interest in polar exploration and only read this as it is incuded in 'The Water Beetle', a collection of Mitford's writings, which I have recently acquired. Just about half an hour ago, I learned from Radio 4's 'A Point of View' that March 2012 will be the Centenary of the expedition.
