Abuse of Falklands Argentine conscripts.

Had a few of the conscripts (POW's) on Uganda and most of them were from the poorer regions out in the boondocks ... conscripted and put on a Herc and flown to the Islands ... and really thought they were "fighting" on the Argentinian mainland and had been told that if they were captured they would be treated like it seems their Officers were treating them in the first place ... a lot of very scared kids!

Mate of mine was a killick stoker on the Norland. He said the PoWs they returned to the mainland were pretty much starving and extremely grateful for the hot meals, warm and comfortable accommodation. Poor sods, they really did have it rough.

The wounded POWs that came to us were terrified that we were going to torture them and then eat them. They had been told not to get captured as this was what awaited them.
They spent most of the time before being repatriated, in their beds with the pillows pulled over their heads and the blankets pulled right up so that you could only see their eyes.

But if memory serve dapps they couldn't get enough of the rock cakes (sorry bread rolls) you guys produced on a daily basis! :)

Funnily enough, there were no pussers chefs on there. As it happens all the cooking was done by civvies.
I was a bit of an after thought and spent half of my time on the flight deck as a chockhead and the other half as a nurse!
