    Its a BL755 with a 119 tail unit, i didnt realise we had used them in the war. I wonder if there was some armour in the area at the time.

    Various pics here the field kitchens were to the east side of Tumbledown nearest to Port Stanley. The mess kit with bullet hole through it i managed to salvage for my collection, there were also lots of cheap rubber soled plimsoles around.

    More from Tumbledown including cave that we found an Argentine sleeping bag in, it was in very good condition and is now in the museum in Stanley as they didnt have one. Trip wire assembly was still stuck into ground. These pictures were taken from SW corner of Mountain.

    Hi, those kitchen belonged to the well trained Marines Batallion no. 5 (Batallon de Infanteria de Marina 5) they fought against Welsh Guards on June 13th night together with Infantry Regiment no. 6.
    The remains of those canvas shoes were part of the regiment's 6 cloth for training during recruitment, many soldiers carry their casual cloth to the islands on a heavy bags, of course they were useless.
