Comment on George Brown 1927 – 2011 by David Waterman.

I happened upon this story of 2 years ago. I was given “Antarctic Housewife” by a friend of mine, originally from the Falklands. I was really interested and actually wrote a couple of letters to George and Nan care of the Flying Doctor Service. Unfortunately never received a reply but I just wanted to know more of what happened to them after South Georgia.
I was prompted to search online by a television programme here in the UK about the whaling industry, including a visit to the whaling station at Leith Harbour.
Unfortunately I found out that Nan had passed away about 1996, I think.
They sound a fascinating couple, and I still have her book, and her story has stayed with me.
