The South Polar Times was revived on Scott’s last expedition, probably through the influence of Wilson, who provided most of the illustrations. As before, the newspaper - which contained articles by all hands - offered a combination of scholarly discussion and knockabout humour. Apsley Cherry-Garrard, assistant zoologist on Terra Nova, edited the text. He presented the first part to Scott on Midwinter’s Day (22 June 1911), the Antarctic Christmas. The collected issues were published in a single volume by Smith, Elder and Co. three years later.
