I knew this ex soldier once, he was quite a decent bloke too. He served in the Falklands War though he didn’t speak about it often. His father bought him out of the military when he arrived home or he would have faced a prison sentence. The thing that sickened him to the stomach the most, is that the young Argentinean boys who he was told were our “enemy” all had British army issue rifles in their hands.
In all the pomp and circumstance that’s been going on of late, I’ve not heard this quiet truth spoken anywhere else but I did find this on the webhttp://www.kirkbytimes.co.uk/antiwaritems/falklands%20deception.html
