12 Westwood Hill, SE26
After a brief residency in East Croydon, the Shackleton family moved here not long after coming to England and stayed for many years. Ernest, on the other hand, was all over the place. He lived here, though, when a student at nearby Dulwich College, where his famous boat, the James Caird is on view to this very day.
42 Vicarage Crescent, SW11
Presumably Wilson lived here during his association with St Georges Hospital which then was located at Hyde Park Corner. He taught a Bible class at the nearby Caius College Mission.
56 Oakley Street, SW3
[Scott lived here with his mother and sisters around the time of the Discovery expedition. Although they were yet to meet, his future wife, Kathleen Bruce, lived nearly around the corner at 133 Cheyne Walk.]

[Harding Dunnett and I went to see this. It wasn't far from his house but it took us awhile to find it.]
GREATER LONDON COUNCIL
309 Upper Richmond Road, London SW15.
Removed when the house was demolished. [The plaque seems to have disappeared. I thought it had been sent off to the Oates Museum in Selborne but I was told by staff there that it was nowhere in sight. I seem to recall that Pam Whiffin of English Heritage had told me ten or so years ago that the plaque was under her desk. That's when EH was located in Savile Row.]
