Lieutenant Keith Mills


Lieutenant Keith Mills was the commander of the 22 Royal Marines who were charged with defending the British Antarctic Survey and defending the island from further Argentine incursion. His force was responsible for knocking out a helicopter and severely damaging a ship before surrendering when it was clear that their pathway to the hills was cut off. This picture was taken 25 years later when a plaque to the defence and liberation of the island was unveiled.
