The Captain Scott Memorial Lighthouse Clock Tower was built in 1915 to commemorate the ill-fated expedition to the Antarctic aboard the ship Terra Nova, sailing out from Roath Dock, Cardiff, on June 15th 1910.
The plaque on the front, facing the Promenade, reads:
To the memory of
Captain R. F. Scott C.V.O. D.S.O. , R.N.
and his faithful companions
Captain L. E. G. Oates, Lieut. H. R. Bowers R.I.M.,
Dr. E. A. Wilson and Petty Officer Edgar Evans R.N.
who sailed in the S.S. Terra Nova from the Port of Cardiff
June 15th 1910, to locate the South Pole; and, in pursuit of
that great and successful scientific task, laid down their
lives in the Antarctic Regions. March 1912.
“Britons all, and very gallant gentlemen”.
