Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I used to work with a chap who flew choppers down in the South Atlantic circa 1982. He was mensioned in dispatches for his part in rescuing 22 SAS off of the glacier.

    Whilst trying to get back in contact I came across his Flickr account and he has scanned in some of the photos he took of the incident, before and after. I thought I would share as some of you may be interested.

    There are 44 images of "Humphry", Antrim, Santa Fe, Illustrious etc etc, but the images from this one onwards are of 22 sas with descriptions of what is happening.
