The bronze plaque on the base reads:

Robert Falcon Scott
Captain Royal Navy
who with four companions
died march 1912 returning from the South Pole

'Had we lived I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman > but these rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale.' — From Scott's Diary
