I was at school (or bunking off at the beach) Maximum respect for all who deployed on Corporate, they played a blinder!The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen.

I was a school boy, 13 years old. Dad disappeared with the task force as did most Marines. Fuck, my mum didn't like that twat on telly who kept saying "One of our ships has been lost". Cheers twat, just scare to death everyfuckingone for a news snippit.
I had the privilage of my senior marines and Corprals when I passed out all being Falklands Vets, top teachers. This site has had/has Marines from NP8901 and the units that re took the Falklands as members for many a year, same as we've been privalilaged to have matelots who were part of the task force that won the islands back. I salute you.why you kikka my dog and a call it fuck off?

I was four. I feel like I can remember things on the news about it but most likely it's all the documentaries that have been on TV since, although I certainly the remember the documentary on Simon Weston being aired. That was probably a year or three after it was all over.
One of my closest mates served on Alacrity in 82. He doesn't talk much about it unless it comes up in conversation, then we manage to prize a couple of snippets of his experience down there from him.

I was 4 years old so had little recollection of it happening at the time. However my first ship had a lot of vets. As 95% of mess was old source branch there were a few in the mess.
They rarely spoke of it when they did it wasn't for long but I listened to their dits. One even had flash backs when you shook him.
My thoughts are with those still suffering, and those that didn't come back.
I served on the Glasgow which was also a veteran in her own right.
Shame today's generation have little knowledge or respect for those that fought in 82.
So to those on here who were down there. My cap goes off to you and you know you are always welcome to chit a beer or two on my beer bill
