Situated on the Southern boundary of the Pegasus Airstrip (Circa 1982), this marker had been left by the Land Rover Club’s Calvert Centenary Expedition of 1996. It commemorated the deaths of two expedition members, Charles Frederick Wells and George Lindsay JONES who died within several kilometers of this spot during their ill-fated search for Joanna Spring in 1896.

The marker is located near the windsock pole at the eastern end of the airstrip (see photos).
