Ironically, while celebrating Arctic history, there were strong appeals to look toward a great field of future discovery: Antarctica. In fact, in July , the International Geographical Congress met in London and it was decided that Antarctica would be the primary focus of new exploration. The meeting touched off a flurry of activity, and soon thereafter, national expeditions from Britain, Germany and Sweden, as well as private ventures, started organizing their assaults on the sleepy frozen continent. One such expedition, the British National Antarctic Expedition of , heralded the creation of the Polar Medal — a decoration that endures to this day.
In , the Arctic still held a mysterious allure for many explorers. The first sailing of a north-west passage was still a decade away, and the attainment of the North Pole a few years beyond that maritime landmark. Indeed, the Scottish Geographical Society's Franklin Commemoration put on a display beginning 4 June, touching upon both ends of the globe: The company then passed into the library to inspect the interesting collection of Franklin relics and objects connected with other Polar voyagers, both Arctic and Antarctic, which had been lent by various institutions and private contributors.
The exhibition was open daily during the remainder of the week, and proved a great attraction to many hundreds of visitors. European explorers conveyed their culture to the polar regions, right down to very personal items — like medals. The long and impressive list of widely varied artefacts and natural history items on public view contained notable medallic pieces. The primary object of the search was to follow up on recent Inuit reports that records and journals from the Franklin Expedition might still exist on King William Island.
On the western shore of the island, a grave built above ground with flat sandstone slabs was discovered by Klutschak. A skull and other human bones lay just outside it. During this long period it had even left a mark on the rock, and it provided definite proof as to the identity of the person buried here. At the bottom of the cross are obverse and reverse representations of his medal. The base below is carved with a relief showing crew members preparing to bury Irving, as a sledge bearing his body is dragged across the ice to shore.
The Erebus and Terror are shown beset in the background. Two Arctic Discovery medals. This was Lieutenant Colonel John Murray b. Polmaise Castle was his mansion in St. Ninians Parish, Stirlingshire. Presumably he displayed two medals in order to show the obverse and reverse designs. BY MR. Johns hailed from Penryn, Cornwall, and stepped aboard Erebus on 2 May , having been discharged from his last vessel the three-gun brig Pandora on 14 January He married Jemima Cooke just four months later in the parish of Gluvias.
