SOUTH ATLANTIC RECOGNITION.


Falkland Islands



Reason for Deployment
As the Falklands conflict progressed, it became increasingly clear that a major “clearing-up” operation would be required after the war, to make the ‘ Islands’ coastal waters safe. Port Stanley, Port William, and San Carlos Water in particular were littered with all types of unexploded ordnance, aircraft wreckage, jettisoned fuel tanks and other hazards.
The first step was the well-documented conversion of the five ocean-going trawlers into minesweepers. These vessels (JUNELLA, NORTHELLA, CORDELLA, FARNELL and PICT) arrived in Stanley shortly after the surrender. They successfully swept a high proportion of the moored mines laid by the Argentines outside Port Stanley harbour. The Hunts (HMS Ledbury and HMS Brecon), with their computerised mine hunting facilities and remotely controlled submersibles (RCMDS) were ideally suited to finishing off the excellent job done by the trawlers and dealing with all the underwater hazards left in the aftermath of the war.

Poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy writes poem for First World War dead (Video)

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.
If poetry could tell it backwards, true, begin
that moment shrapnel scythed you to the stinking mud...
but you get up, amazed, watch bled bad blood
run upwards from the slime into its wounds;
see lines and lines of British boys rewind
back to their trenches, kiss the photographs from home -
mothers, sweethearts, sisters, younger brothers
not entering the story now to die and die and die.
Dulce - No - Decorum - No - Pro patria mori.
You walk away.
You walk away; drop your gun (fixed bayonet)
like all your mates do too -
Harry, Tommy, Wilfred, Edward, Bert -
and light a cigarette.
There's coffee in the square,
warm French bread
and all those thousands dead
are shaking dried mud from their hair
and queuing up for home. Freshly alive,
a lad plays Tipperary to the crowd, released
from History; the glistening, healthy horses fit for heroes, kings.
You lean against a wall,
your several million lives still possible
and crammed with love, work, children, talent, English beer, good food.
You see the poet tuck away his pocket-book and smile.
If poetry could truly tell it backwards,
then it would.


Carol Ann Duffy,


This is a poem I wrote about the First World War

Bastard mud
Human soup
Sucking me down
Loosing my boots
Liquid hell
Putrid smell
Cold and heavy
Can you tell
A sea of men
An ocean of shit
Cant seen to swim
I think I’ve been hit.

Hackers break into MI5 web site It seems MI5 along with the MOD are a joke but not a very funny one. To say that its `unlikely` to have caused a breach of national security says it all really. The problem we have is the staff we have working for us at both department are a product of New Labour and as such anyone who fancies a go at it will get the opportunity especially of they follow the `common purpose` guidelines.


The MoD has today announced that regular statistics will be published detailing the numbers of military patients There will be more facts in a Harry Potter novel than this!

MoD confirms soaring casualty rate in Afghanistan And according to the MOD they are all benefit scroungers!

Bob Ainsworth beats the retreat When pushed on this issue Ainsworth just shouted `BOLLOCKS` said he needed a bowl of tripe to think.


Funeral held for First World War veteran Henry Allingham At last Henry its time for you to RIP.

US surgeons drafted in as British medics exhausted by casualty surge This once again proves that the Socialist Labour party didn’t think this War through correctly the same as they did in Iraq, perhaps the Yanks can lend us some helicopters as well?

New biomedical research facility opens in UK I’m sure the Hackers have had a good look around the place already.


Bill O` Reilly For President.


Betrayed
The whole Country has been betrayed by the Socialist Labour Party.

Gordon Ramsay's military showdown It’s a good job Gordon wasn’t talking to a British Para or blood would have been shed!

Bodies of three soldiers brought home from Afghanistan RIP

MoD Brings Forward Compensation Review More Spin from the Socialists. Lets here from the Tories on this issue.

Could UK Send More Troops To Afghanistan? The simple answer is YES but the ones that are there now, don’t get the support they deserve, so we need a huge increase in all aspects of the Campaign not just numbers., and anyway what about other NATO Countries?

British veterans made to fight another battle by the MOD to keep their compensation


On a day when the bodies of four UK servicemen are flown back home after making the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan the MOD are in the Court of Appeal. Why may you ask are they costing the British tax payer tens of thousands in legal bills? To make the lives of our young injured servicemen some who have horrific injuries better? No they are once again making our Heroes fight another battle for adequate compensation that must last them for the rest of their lives. A soldier with the Light Dragoons Anthony Duncan, who now walks with crutches after being shot while on patrol in Iraq, was originally awarded £9,250 which was increased to £46,000 by an appeal tribunal. £9,250 I’m sure the average House of Commons MP will put in a larger expenses bill for toilet paper than that. Then we have Royal Marine Matthew McWilliams who fractured his thigh in a military exercise and was awarded £8,250 later increased to £28,750 on appeal. When I first heard the news about this I assumed that these men had been awarded far more than this. It was nothing like £484,000 that was awarded to an RAF typist that had a sore finger. Its one thing getting injured whilst in the service of your Country, but then to have go through this disgraceful ordeal is something else and can only add to the depression of your original illness. Your Government thinking of you as some kind of burden. The same Government that sends these young men and woman to War in the first place. Military commanders will always want more assets, helicopters , radios , boots on the ground. But these boots on the ground are filled with human beings that due to the nature of the job can get extremely badly hurt or killed. The MOD should also consider paying for our servicemen’s injuries part of the Bill of going to War. I’m sure that most of the General public would not begrudge these men this compensation that on the face of it isn’t very much anyway. Like the Governments stance on the Gurkhas, they have made a serious error of judgement in this case and feelings amongst the British public and the military community will be running high. In my opinion servicemen & woman are being discriminated against due to the nature of their job. This would never happen if it were a policeman, Fire-fighter, Ambulance man ect..But for some strange reason Soldiers are fair game. The Government are reaping their rewards of the mishandling of our economy due to the high numbers of recruits looking for work. Just remember if you are thinking of signing that dotted line, if you join the military you will never meet such loyal friends in your life as your fellow soldiers. Once you have been in combat there will always be a bond between you, a bond that those penny pinching MOD lawyers could never understand but you could end up like Anthony Duncan or Matthew McWilliams, or even worse being saluted as you lie dead in a coffin being mourned by the crowds in Wooton Bassatt. Sometimes your longest War begins when you hand your uniform in and rejoin civvie street.

Britain's last WW1 veteran dies






Britain's last WW1 veteran dies RIP

With the passing of Henry Allingham and now Harry Patch it’s the end of an era for our WW1 veterans. Eventually there will be no more WW2 veterans and then Korean and then Falklands War vets, but with the Wars we are engaged with at the moment there will be many thousands of British veterans left to tell the tale for a while

Did you serve in Iraq or Afghanistan?

I got this email from a good bloke called Clayton, he loves the Brits that much he even married one. He is looking for stories from servicemen who have served in Iraq & Afghanistan. See his details below.




Hello my name is Clayton D. Murwin I am a friend of CJ Grisham and Troy Steward from YouServed Blog Talk radio, I ask this because I am producing a Graphic Novel called Untold Stories from Iraq & Afghanistan. We are using real stories from real soldiers that served in the wars and we are illustrating them to be published as a charity project to support our troops. here is the original website https://www.freewebs.com/herosfallen/ and the new site located here.
https://www.heroesfallen.blogspot.com If you served in either Iraq or Afghanistan I was wondering if you would be willing to share a story for the graphic novel. As I want to have a story from our strongest allies ( Especially since my wife is a Brit!) I lived in Wallasey Merseyside for three years. Anyway if it sounds like something you would be interested in I would love to here from you.
