I knew a few advanced artillery spotters (RN, RM) who landed on the Falkland’s before
the main assault arrived, they were in small teams and played a key role aiming
the 10mile marksmen, hell of a job to do and left mainly to their own devises
for survival, and await eventual back up when the main troops arrived.
