Carpenter - Discovery 1901-04

Joined the expedition from H.M.S. Ganges. Apprentice in a wooden shipyard at a time when wooden ships were being replaced by iron and then steel hulled ships. In Antarctica he was responsible for building the Discovery Hut which still stands. A member of Scott's Western Attempt, the Southern Support Party and the Western Depot Party, manhauling and laying depots for others.

"In his own department our carpenter, F.E. Dailey, worked with the same zealous care as the boatswain. He possessed the same "eye" for defects and the same determination that his charge should be beyond reproach".
Robert Scott
