Penguins playing rugby?

The current exhibition at the Scott Polar museum on Lensfield Road in Cambridge is of documents relating to Scott’s final expedition to the South Pole. Very moving, but it also has some flashes of humour: clearly polar exploration had its dull moments! This picture of Penguins playing rugby illustrates that need for entertainment.

A better pic is available from the BBC a while ago.

The Scott Polar Museum is well worth a visit if you are in Cambridge, and the Terra Nova exhibition is on until the start of May.
