Falklands Islands revisited

A FORMER president both of Dundee Photographic Society and of Abertay Probus Club, John Alexander, was the visiting speaker at Monifieth Probus Club’s meeting in David Lloyd Leisure, Ethiebeaton Park, on Tuesday.

Having originally got to know the South Atlantic island of South Georgia through working there in the 1950s John recently made a return visit, which took him to the Falkland Isles by air and from there to South Georgia and back by yacht.

The club’s new president, Peter Duguid chaired the meeting and Andrew Grieve proposed a vote of thanks and presented John with the Club’s customary donation to pass on to his chosen good cause, the South Georgia Heritage Trust.
