Photograph of the Officer's table for Captain Scott's birthday dinner with a variety of food and drink laid out on the table.
The men are celebrating Scott’s 43rd birthday - his last - on 6 June 1911. He sits at the head of the table, and is surrounded by the officers and senior members of the team. The only man looking at the camera is the Norwegian naval officer Tryggve Gran (1889-1980). The atmosphere is both festive and patriotic.
