The memorial statue to Captain Robert Falcon Scott standing in Waterloo Place. Despite the fact that the Scott expedition was a failure, the British saw it as a victory. The expedition was an outstanding physical and moral example of patriotic masculinity. The British regarded the Scott story as heroic: they died as hero's in service to the nation and showed moral strength. This shows that sacrifice and heroism redeemed failure and expresses the values that characterized Polar exploration.
