Arthur Peake was born in Pontefract, Yorkshire. Carrying a suitcase in one hand and a guitar in the other he sailed from Britain to the Falklands in 1959, at the age of twenty, to work as an electronics technician at the Radio Space Research Station (RSRS). On the trip down to the Islands, a few of the passengers would gather in the bar each evening. The group had two people named Arthur, and Harry Rowlands decided there could not be two Arthurs. Turning to Arthur Peake he said, ‘You will have to be Mike.’ The name stuck for the rest of his life with Mike even naming his son Michael. He was also the father of Bernadette and Alison and a proud grandfather to Isaac, Cody and Louie.
