The Antarctic Journals of Reginald Skelton: Another Little Job for the Tinker

Front Cover
Reardon Pub., Jan 1, 2004 - Antarctica - 232 pages
Reginald Skelton Was Chief Engineer, and Offical Photographer to Captain Scott's Discovery Expedition; My memories of my grandfather are of an old, but still fit and upright, man who had a deep gravelly voice and chuckled a lot. I was only ten when he died in 1956 and he never, as far as I can remember, told me anything about his time in the Antarctic. 42 years after his death we had, in a sense, changed places and I was getting the full story. By then into my fifties, seated in the library at the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) in Cambridge, I began reading the Antarctic journals of Reginald Skelton, not yet out of his twenties, who had been chosen as Scott's chief engineer on the Discovery Expedition.
