The "L 1031" up near Spitzbergen?

Yes. It looked wrong but of course it could be a low embedded close to the centre of the high.

     I have seen the same thing in reverse.  In early December 1976 there was a large complex low over the UK and between a couple of the centres there was indicated "H 978", near Scotland.  I think it lasted about 12 hours.

The the first isobar south of the centre must be 1032 mb, so if the centre is 1031 mb then it is a low!
