Alternate story[edit]

BBC story Dec 21, 2009, http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/hampshire/hi/people_and_places/history/newsid_8386000/8386947.stm gives the reindeer's name as Pollyanna and the reindeer's English home as the Regents Park Zoo in London. I am inclined to say the sourced text in wikipedia is correct, but I'll mention this for possible fact-checking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JoeBrennan (talkcontribs) 17:46, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Just resurfaced (sorry) on BBC's The One Show and in the local Portsmouth press: [1]. The name Pollyanna seems to have been endorsed by Royal Navy Submarine Museum Archivist George Malcolmson. Although the town was called Polyarnoe (or, in fact, Polyarny), the reindeer could easily have been "named after" the town with the name Pollyanna. Antony Preston certainly didn't serve on Trident himself. Martinevans123 (talk) 19:48, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
