Tasman Spaulding served as an Able Seaman on the S.Y. Terra Nova on the 1903-1904 voyage to Antarctica. A clerical error that reversed his given and family names meant that he never knew of the bronze Polar Medal awarded for his services in the expedition. For the last 108 years the incorrectly named medal has languished in the archives of the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom but has been released for display at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart.
