Talk by Falklands Veteran Stan Darbyshire

Stan served with 11 Field Sqn Royal Engineers during the Falklands War. He landed at Port San Carlos and after digging in helped to improve the airstrip and fuel supplies. He was sent to Ajax Bay to run the water point for Commando Logistic Regiment. On return to the Squadron at Port San Carlos they moved into Stanley and worked on the airfield repairs and further harrier support. The troops also carried out stevedore works unloading the MV Strathewe. Stan was one of 2 sappers working shifts responsible for loading engineers plant and stores onto mexe floats as it came off the ship.

During our FI 36 Northwest reunion, Stan will be delivering a photo PowerPoint presentation about the role of 11 Field Sqn Royal Engineers during the Falklands War showing the tasks carried out using soldiers own pictures and some stock internet photos for information.
