This is a story of a Royal Naval surgeon who took part in the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-1913, led by Captain Robert Falcon Scott RN. Surgeon Atkinson was one of sixteen men who set out towards the South Pole from which Scott and his four companions failed to return. Much of the responsibility for the aftermath of the expedition and that fateful return, fell on Atkinson as the senior naval officer left in command who led the search to find the bodies. These events were closely followed by the Great War, 1914-1918, in which Atkinson went on to serve and was severely wounded. It is a story of crisis, adventure, grit and determination shown in Antarctica and later during the Great War, by a man determined to loyally serve his country.
