Op Corporate being a bit before my time perhaps someone on here can bottom this out for me: There's a bloke I work with who says he was 1st Bn Scots Guards in the 70s and 80s. Last week he told he been to the Falklands and showed me his (a) South Atlantic Medal ribbon. "Thought 2 Scots Guards went" says I? "No they sent more than just 2" ????? "No, 2nd Battalion you said you were 1st". "Ah I was a sniper, I was only sent down for 15 days". Silence from me as I wasn't there and don't want to make myself look stupider than usual. SO - did guys back then really not know what 2 Scots Guards or similar meant? And would anyone have been sent for only 15 days?
