Doorly joined the crew of the Morning as third officer following the intervention of Edward Evans with whom he had gone to sea as a cadet on the training ship Worcester. The Morning under the command of Capt. Colbeck, carried out the successful Relief Expedition to Scott's 1902-1904 Discovery Expedition. On their return Evans was encouraged by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to publish an account of the voyage, however having asked Doorly to join him in this venture other commitments prevented him from beginning the project, leaving Doorly to publish his own work some ten years later.
