A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. Fragments of a navy blue coat now reduced to powder, with a few small silk-covered buttons, in a cardboard box. It was found on a skeleton presumed to be Henry Peter Peglar (1811-48), HMS 'Terror', at Cape Hershel on 25 May 1859, by the McClintock Search Expedition 1857-1859. The skeleton is more likely to be that of Peglar's friend, Thomas Armitage, Gun Room Steward, HMS 'Terror'.
