Falklands War.... Questions, of a quizzy nature.

What unit provided an armed escort for recently hatched turtles, protecting them from bird attacks whilst they made their way from the beach to the water?

Right, I will genuinely have a crack at these... Although to be honest.... It's going to make me look crap.

FWIW.... I would ask similar questions.

Joe Public however doesn't (or so I believe). It's more general, much less specific and a bit more..... Dunno, wide? Politics, Journalistic input (Gotcha?) etc....

Appreciate the notion though fellas.... Just in from the pub.

Profits to the South Atlantic Medal Association (SAMA82) surely!
I stand corrected, and please don't tell my oppo across the desk that I forgot about his favourite charity. :oops:
