When you say loaded rifles do you mean all magazines fully loaded, 200 link and a few bangy bombs just incase? Dont want to see perce stepping out into the big blue yonder without a full war load?

As I suspect you know really.

Stagging on is hardly the same; the defences are to protect the site, not every individual.
A closer comparison would be a camp with only five rounds, rather than a sentry, and I doubt that is the case anywhere. Give it time, though.

Like so many of the posts in the various Falklands threads this just reeks of complacency "Oh it'll never happen... and even if it does our allies will save us...etc, etc." What makes it worse is that the worst complacency comes from Navy types themselves, I could understand if it was Crabs saying "It's OK we'll always be there to protect you," but sailors?"A politician is an arrse upon which everyone has sat, except a man."- e.e. cummings.

Sweet Jesus, will this never end? There was no complacency, there was a defined situation, a known threat, a range of options considered and a course of action delivered, consistent with what was needed for the task and safety of the platform/crew.
Please let this cease, so much unnecessary, unhelpful, unwarranted speculation.....
Final point - this isn't the Falklands, so much has moved on and it was very definately a different scenario.
