Battle for Tumbledown Mountain

In a battle lasting for hours during the night of 13/14 June 1982, 2nd Battalion, The Scots Guards, fought to drive the Argentine defenders of the Batallón de Infantería de Marina 5, from their dug-in positions on top of Tumbledown Mountain.
By 0200hrs the battle was essentially stalemated. In an attempt to break this stalemate before daylight found the pinned-down Guards exposed in the open, Major John Kiszely led a small group of men up a gulley and was able to outflank the Argentine positions.
Here we see the final moments of their charge, as the small group with bayonets fixed, storm an Argentine sangar.
