I feel bad that I can’t identify everyone, but there’s no mistaking Birdie’s beak next to Scott. Heartbreaking to see this photo & know that they only had eleven months left to live.
Griffith “Griff” Taylor; Charles “Silas” Wright; Edward “Teddy” Evans; Henry “Birdie” Bowers; “The Owner”; Frank “Deb” Debenham; Tryggve “Trigger” Gran; Edgar “Taff” Evans; Tom “Balls of Steel” Crean.
(OK, that last one is not historically accurate but I defy anyone to tell me it’s not the truth.)
Teddy Evans says of this photo, “Ponting lined us up to be photographed - the first nine Bolshevists - we looked such awful blackguards.” (South with Scott, pp.113-114)

Anonymous asked: Do you have any long lumione fic recs? :)
I adore Hungry Thirsty Crazy by FlowersBecomeScreen (or SinisterPapayaFondue, depending on which site you’re on) and Eden by Obsessmuch (sp?) is a Lumione classic, although not for the faint-hearted. I also love the writing of Duco Lacuna, although she has taken down her stories from most sites, I believe. HTC is not complete, however. From a purely narcissistic point of view, and recing one of mine … probably The Sense of Taste, although, again, that’s not for the faint-hearted. Thanks for asking. :-)
