Twenty-Five years ago, at the dawn of the Falklands conflict, Royal Marine Keith Mills led a legendary resistance against an Argentinean force attempting to invade South Georgia Island. He was decorated for his bravery, had a mountain on the island named after him and has now for the first time gone back to the scene of his triumph.
Nothing major, but personally I didn't know about this event, but I was born in the year of the conflict so I'm only young :oops: .

Having set foot on SG back in 92 on R&R (You can Ram being a Matelot! 4 days there in Gale Force 9/10 myself and another Sapper a Sgt from MT being laughed at everytime our meals Od Jebi'd across the other side of the table each time the ship 'pitched'!!!) and having seen the helicopter that was taken down and the savagery of that place you can only step back in awe of what those lads did back in 82... Nice One Fellas and glad you have managed to revisit the place.....
