The Register of Deaths tells us that Heed was a Meteorological Observer. It also gives him an alternative name 'Carlos Gustavo'. As he was a meteorologist, he will have been working at the met station run by the Argentines, so may have been known by this name as being more pronouncable by his comrades.




Karl's grave was refurbished in 2010. The marble plaque was reset in a new concrete surround and the lettering painted in.
