Expedition Reports Q115 S966 1901
Stockholm: Lithographische Institut des Generalstabs
In December 1902, three of the Antartic’s crew were dropped off at Hope Bay with the intention of rescuing the Snow Hill inhabitants. They were not successful, being forced to dig in for the winter in a makeshift hut. After leaving these three men behind, the ship became stuck in ice and sank in early February 1903. The remaining crew trekked to Paulet Island, with the ship’s cat, and built a hut to fit twenty men. The situation for all three parties seemed hopeless, with no group knowing the whereabouts of the other. Finally, in incredibly coincidental circumstances, all expedition members were found and rescued late in 1903 by the crew of Argentinian naval ship, Uruguay. Despite not achieving all scientific objectives, the expedition generated at least six volumes of scientific reports, as above.
