AbstractCaptain Robert F. Scott visited Seamon's Moss school on Wednesday February 16th, 1910. He briefly addressed the boys on the prospects of success in winning the race for the Pole and acceding to the boys request that he should draw something as a memento of the visit, he drew a sketch of the "Terra Nova" which he signed. He then stood for his photograph surrounded by the boys and left amid ringing cheers and hearty handshakes of a crowd clamorous for the honour. To show some practical sympathy with the expedition a sum of money £36.0.5 collected from the school and friends in the district, provided Captain Scott with a pony and sledge. The pony was called "SEAMON" after the name of the school. The sledge was named "Altrincham". Thus the town will have a distinct interest in the historic expedition. (Altrincham & Bowdon Guardian, February 19th 1910)
