This photograph records the achievement of reaching the South Pole. Scott stands with his men (from left to right: Oates, Bowers, Scott, Wilson and Evans) in front of the Union Jack given to him by Queen Alexandra. The men are all suffering from frostbite and malnutrition, and the physical exhaustion is apparent on their faces.
