The reason i find it hard to believe he hit the A4 as i was the loader on the SBD Bofer and im buggered if can remember any of the lads off the GDP cheering, the thing for sure did not disapear in a cloud of smoke, however they me be a hint of truth as we did get a signal from another ship that sombody seen a fragment detach from the tail at the time before it was lost from visual range,
I can`t see why Feerless were miffed they managed too put a seacat between are Funnels only God knows why the proxy fuse didn`t detonate HaDidn't watch the TV programme, but I doubt the guy was granting forgiveness on behalf of anyone other than himself.
Certainly I don't bear a grudge against any Argentine service person but I still question any British politician that commits the UK Armed forces to a war they are ill-equipped to fight. So that will be any war in the last 50 years, then.
With regard "who downed what" conundrum, from what I recall, anyone pointing a weapon in the general direction of an aircraft that is hit will naturally claim it was them. On day one of the landings there were more claimed hits that the combined strength of the Argentine Air Force and Navy. Such is the fog of war - perhaps we should use Baldrick's logic & write our names on the anti-aircraft projectiles.
The problem with PTSD, Battle Stress, call it what you will, is that there are undoubtedly many who suffer this debilitating condition. Equally there are charlatans who discredit and deny the genuine sufferers by using PTSD as a convenient label to avoid responsibility for their own particular circumstances.
Interestingly Fearless got in a bit of a strop with my ship because 'our' spent Seacat missiles were rather alarmingly dropping all around them. Since then I've unilaterally forgiven all those on board Fearless who got a bit miffed.
