RIP to all the Fallen. For, to a man, they had bigger bollocks than I could ever have!....Remember it unfolding like it was only yesterday!The harder the fighting and the longer the war, the more the infantry and in fact all the arms, lean on the Gunners - Field Marshal Montgomery.

Rip to the fallen another who visted the Battle field and thought how the fuck did rhey pull that off.On a Hot morning in cyprus I found the meaning of anger. Fortunataly I was comftably numb.
The RSM and various other NCO's seemed very agitated.
maybe they should look into counselling?

The inspirational bravery and fortitude demonstrated by the Para's in this action is something that other infantrymen could only hope and pray they would equal if they were to be tested by similar odds. A legendary demonstration by superb troops of how to take the battle to the enemy and despite terrible casualties and the most arduous conditions, defeat the enemy and carry on fighting the war until the job was ultimately finished.I was a good runner in the mob. I alway's liked to think I could get out of trouble quicker than what I got into it!

As a 14 year old lad at the time, to watch the whole campaign played out on the telly each night, it was like Commando comic come to life. It was only after joining up that I could truly appreciate the amazing feats that were achieved down there by all concerned but especially the PBI. To the lads who didn't come back, RIP.It's Tommy this an' Tommy that

I agree with RGJ Bloke, a bloody fine example. What did Monty say, 'Every man an emperor with balls as big as space hoppers'.

Attended the Goose Green memorial today as part of the RIC & having "sampled" (onion range, delight) the terrain & climate that the Paras & RM fought in & had the fortune to do a battlefield tour of the area nothing but respect & admiration for the lads who took part in the conflict 30 years ago.
