Captain Lawrence Edward Grace Oates (1880-1912) - Biographical notes

Lawrence "Titus" Oates walked into the history books when on March 17th 1912 on the return journey from the South Pole, after going to sleep hoping not to wake, he did awake to once again find a blizzard blowing. His last words were

"I am just going outside and may be some time."

Biographical information - This is a difficult area to research, I am concentrating on the Polar experiences of the men involved. Any further information or pictures visitors may have is gratefully received. Please email  - Paul Ward, webmaster.
What are the chances that my ancestor was an unsung part of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration?
