Captain Lawrence Edward Grace Oates (1880-1912) - Biographical notes
Terra Nova 1910-13
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
