Wilson, along with Captain Scott, perished on the return journey from the South Pole in 1912. Some of the material displayed has never been seen in public before. Accompanying the exhibition there will be a talk by David Wilson, great nephew of Edward Wilson, and other guest speakers, as well as a display of thematic art of the Antarctic. The exhibition opening and talk will be held in the Monkton Lecture Theatre, Ground Floor, Grosvenor Wing at the hospital. Refreshments will be served.
