Secret death toll of SAS war in the Falklands

FIFTEEN Argentine soldiers died in gun battles with British Special Forces in Argentina during the Falklands campaign, a book endorsed by Prince Andrew claims.The secret war has been covered up by both sides but the book’s author says he was contacted by Argentinian conscripts who were desperate to have their story told.

Special Forces helicopter pilot Col­onel Richard Hutchings says: “They claim their war against the British enemy took place on the Argentinian mainland in Patagonia, where 3,000 conscripts operated alongside regulars to protect airfields and aviation fuel dumps at Rio Grande and Rio Gallegos air bases from covert sabotage operations by British Special Forces.

“These conscripts alleged they fought against the SAS and SBS on Argentina’s mainland and say their war service has never been recognised because the very existence of British Special Forces on Argentine soil has long been denied.”Read more   HERE 

(RG) I knew of an aborted mission on mainland Argentina by Special Forces, but I have my doubts about this?

A paratrooper who showed "complete disregard" for his own safety during a Taliban attack in Afghanistan has been awarded the Victoria Cross - the highest British military honour. L/Cpl Joshua Leakey, 27, of the Parachute Regiment, was recognised for his valour during the 2013 attack. He is the third serviceman - and the first living servicemen - to receive the medal for service in Afghanistan. L/Cpl Leakey, from Hampshire, said he was "deeply honoured". He has been recognised with the VC almost 70 years after another member of his family was awarded the same honour. L/Cpl Leakey's second cousin twice removed, Sergeant Nigel Gray Leakey, was a posthumous recipient of the VC in November 1945, for his actions while fighting in Africa during the Second World War.

(RG) Congratulations L/Cpl Joshua Leakey , you are the epitome of a British soldier.
