Falkland vets?


Lantern Swinger
42 Cdo - I and a bunch of oppos were based on LSL Sir Bedevere for most of the time. You out there?
Without meaning to be rude, it took me nearly 10 years to talk to people I love and trust about my experiences down south in '82, so you can guess how much I would love to talk to a complete stranger about the subject.
There are plenty of books to read,, there's a good one by my ex-skipper called "Four weeks in May", that will give you some insight.


I was waiting on that coming. You don't really want to go prodding at pyschologically delicate stuff like that mate. :pale:
Not a problem, but sometimes you can get into hot water if you are not careful. I do talk about it sometimes, but only usually with people I know well and feel comfortable with.
Read some of the books written by people out there, another good one is "Through fire and water" about HMS Ardent.....

No books about 45 in print (That I know of)! Suggest you read some of the following:-

No Picnic

Razors Edge

Kiss me goodnight Sgt Major? Can't remember the proper title.
