Letter from Captain Scott to Baxter Brothers and Company

Donated by Baxter Bros. & Co Ltd
Museum number T3392

In this letter Captain Scott thanks Baxter Bros. for their 'excellent sailcloth' used aboard the 'Discovery' for the Antarctic expedition of 1903-04.
Not only was the 'Discovery' built in Dundee but the sailcloth was woven here too!
Baxter's supplied their sailcloth to the Navy and there is an example from the 'Victory' in the Nelson Museum at Monmouth.
