The correspondence is probably in regard to the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-1913 (leader Robert Falcon Scott). This was to be Scott's second and final expedition to the Antarctic. The expedition ship Terra Nova sailed from Cardiff in 1910. There is no mention of Allan on the ships crew list.
The letter was written prior to the ships departure in 1910.
