Capt Scotts desk

A long dead and dehydrated Emperor Penguin sits with a magazine from home and the other bits and bobs that gravitate towards someone's desk. Actually I find it hard to believe that Scott would have a dead penguin on his desk - I strongly suspect it was put there for effect and no-one has dared to move it since.
