Haven't read the whole thread, nor the dudes book, and it's not really an area I want to start a bunfight in, but for the sake of balance I'll say this...

I've read one or two "derisory" remarks from the dark blue about the antics of the Nimrod fleet during the hot part of the Falklands War and bluntly...they are pretty much spot on.

There were some good guys doing good stuff in April/May 1982, but there were also a couple of total knobheads off the leash and this led to a couple of very well known and easily avoided SNAFU's which in true military fashion put everyone into complete denial mode...at the time and ever since.

And I don't need to go to the National Archives to know what went on....ken what I mean
