Celebrating Captain Scott


In remembrance of Robert Falcon Scott's death on the 29th of March 1912 Quba have reduced the price of our Expedition parka. Robert Falcon Scott, a Royal Navy officer and explorer who led the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition, took a party of five which reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that they had been preceded by Roald Amundsen's Norwegian expedition. On their return journey, Scott and his four comrades all perished from a combination of exhaustion, starvation and extreme cold. Following the news of his death, Scott became an iconic British hero, a status maintained for more than 50 years. To celebrate the Centenary of Scott’s epic journey launched our unique range of clothing and accessories to mark Scott's Centenary celebration. Part of the sale proceeds will be in support of the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust. Quba Clothing is proud to support the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust whose main remit is to conserve Britain's long and distinguished history of Antarctic exploration and scientific research. Quba is delighted to support this cause which has much in common with the ethos and motivation behind the Quba brand and designs Click here to view the collection
