Anne Strathie is the author of Birdie Bowers: Captain Scott’s Marvel and From Ice Floes to Battlefields: Scott’s ‘Antarctics’ in the First World War. Since Anne became a full-time writer her research and speaking engagements have taken her all over Britain and far beyond, including to Antarctica. Anne Strathie will talk about ‘what happened next’ to Oates’ expedition companions and how his death inspired men on the Western Front. When Lawrence Oates joined Scott’s expedition in 1910, he was the only army officer and one of few expedition members who had seen armed conflict. By 1919 almost all Oates Terra Nova companions had seen action and several had died. Anne’s new book, Herbert Ponting: Scott’s Antarctic Photographer and Pioneer Filmmaker will be published in spring 2021.
