Coin memento from Captain Scott expedition's farewell


Wales and the Welsh played an important role in financing Captain Scott's expedition to the South Pole, and a century ago a group of people were invited to Cardiff's City Hall, to meet the great adventurer and his team on the eve of their departure.

Mary Keitch from Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, has a unique memento from the Scott reception given to her mother, a young girl in 1910. Carwyn Jones went to meet her.
