    a grammar teacher

    Of course this passage has some mistakes
    ... he and his family spent on the Greek island of Corfu,
    the reader meets a number of the Greek islanders, including Spiro a pro-British taxi driver who befriends the family in never-to-be-forgotten ways, and the Rose-beetle Man ...
    Must we capitalize "island" in the first line?
    What is the meaning of "pro-British"?
    What is the correct form in the "Rose-beetle Man" ? Must we capitalize "beetle" too? Is it necessary to capitalize "rose" and "man"?
    And is that a special kind of beetle for roses or it is the color of that beetle?
    Thanks

    I googled rose beetle man as I had never heard of it before and found this remarkable picture:
