Mountevans was second on command on Scott's ill-fated 1910-1913 British Antarctic Expedition. Luckily due to a bout of scurvy during the expedition resulting in his removal to England to recuperate he did not suffer the fate of Scott and his party. He survived to recount the exploits, hardships and endurance, living through two Antarctic winters and the disappointment when they realized that the Norwegian, Amundsen, had made it to to the South Pole 34 days before them.
