British Antarctic Territory Postal First Day Cover - Centenary of the Scott Polar Research Institute 2020

British Antarctic Territory Postal First Day Cover - Centenary of the Scott Polar Research Institute 2020

In February 2020, the Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute took 100 of the SPRI 100 First Day Covers of the British Antarctic Territory issue on an epic voyage to the remote Ross Sea, Antarctica, on board the Oceanwide Expeditions vessel M/V Ortelius. The voyage included a visit to Captain Scott's historic hut at Cape Evans. During the voyage, the Friends arranged for the covers to be signed by the Director of SPRI – Professor Julian Dowdeswell and Captain Scott’s grand-daughter – Dafila Scott. The cover has also been signed on the back by the Master of the M/V Ortelius – Captain Ernesto Barria, and stamped with the ship's cachet. Of the 100 signed covers fewer than 20 now remain available for sale.

The covers cost £30.00 each, excluding packing and postage. All the funds from the sale of the covers will be going towards the SPRI Centenary Campaign. As part of the Campaign, the Friends of SPRI are focusing on achieving a target of £250,000 to support a student fellowship in perpetuity at SPRI.
