After a long wait, Nigel Cabourn has finally released Limited Edition 2: Scott's Last Expedition, timed to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of the fateful venture. Working closely with the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, Nigel has spent six years researching the expedition, focussing specifically on the clothing and gear the explorers used. This coat is based on the deck jackets worn by the expedition ship's crew, and named after Lieutenant Henry Robertson 'Birdie' Bowers, a member of Scott's party that reached the south pole, and tragically died on the return journey just 11 miles short of their depot. The jacket is made from a double-woven naval lambswool sourced from Fox Brothers & Co., a traditional British woolen mill that developed the original military khaki, and supplied the Army during the First World War.
