HEED, Karl Gustavsen

Name:HEED, Karl Gustavsen
Born:Norway, 19 November 1902
Died:20 March 1945
Grave Ref:E4

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.
