Quba is launching a unique range of clothing and accessories to mark Scott's Centenary celebrations. This new collection will be launched towards the end of 2010 with proceeds of the sales going to the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust.
In June 1910, Captain Robert Falcon Scott RN, left the shores of the United Kingdom, leading the 'British Antarctic Expedition 1910' onboard the expedition vessel, steam whaler SS Terra Nova.
Captain Scott's main objective was to lead the first party on a expedition to the geographical South Pole and in his words "To reach the South Pole and to secure for the British Empire the honour of this achievement".
This epic journey and its tragic end is one of the most famous stories of world exploration. Scott's name is as well known today as it was a century ago.
"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. These rough notes and our dead bodies
must tell the tale."
Captain Scott, March 1912
The centenary of Captain Scott's Terra Nova expedition (1910-1913) and the death of his Polar Party is set to be celebrated with a series of worldwide events from 2010-2013.
Quba clothing is proud to support the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust (Registered Charity No. 1024911), whose main remit is to conserve Britain's long and distinguished history of Antarctic exploration and scientific research. Quba is delighted to support this cause which has much in common with the ethos and motivation behind the Quba brand.
