Transcript from ’42 Commando Royal Marines Battle For Mount Harriet’ podcast

Jeff – I spoke to a lot of the guys about it and they all thought it was an April fool. We didn’t believe they could have done it but they had and so we’re all fired up then to go. We should point out here it wasn’t a surrender, it was a ceasefire. The governor said, you know there’s no point, so he ordered the guys to put their weapons down.

We traveled down to union and had a couple of days to get ready. I remember getting all the kit and and checking everything was right. I wasn’t supposed to go to the Falklands, but being irritating, I went up to the company commander and said, look I want to go. He said look you’re on a senior command course and that’s important in your life. I said I don’t care, I’ve got to go.
