The final page of Scott's journal, written on 29 March 1912 - the presumed date of his death. It was recovered eight months later by a search party, along with the bodies of Scott, Wilson and Bowers. Evans died on 17 February after collapsing near a glacier. Oates had stepped out of the tent on 17 March, saying: "I am just going outside and I may be some time." He was never seen again. The text reads: "We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity but I do not think I can write more. R. Scott. For God's sake look after our people."
