J Company

J Company had been formed from many of those who had defended Stanley from the initial Argentine attack as part of 8901. They rejoined 42 Commando and took part in the assault on Mount Harriet just before the ending of the war. They were given the privilege of raising the flag at Government House as this picture shows.
