THE PROPERTY OF A LADY
WARRANT OFFICER CARPENTER FREDERICK ERNEST DAILEY, RN
Born in Portsmouth, Dailey was actively sought by Scott for the expedition and joined the Discovery from HMS Ganges. He had served his apprenticeship at HM Dockyard Devonport, a wooden shipyard, and was sent up to Dundee during the building of Discovery. He accompanied Scott on the daily 'rounds' of the ship and was a member of the first southern support party in October-November 1902. 'In his own department our carpenter, F.E. Dailey, worked with the same zealous care as the boatswain. He possessed the same 'eye' for defects and the same determination that his charge should be beyond reproach. (R.F. Scott, The Voyage of the "Discovery", London, 1907, I, p.54). After the expedition he served in the war, was Mentioned-in-Despatches and received the DSC. He was promoted to Lieutenant Commander on his retirement as Barrack Master of the Royal Naval Barracks at Devonport.
