Falklands War News report shows extent of wounded – Daily Mail


Corporal Stewart McLaughlin, 27, who was killed leading British soldiers during the Battle of Mount Longdon in June 1982, was denied a bravery award after commanders lost his handwritten citation. Last month we reported how David Cameron had blocked a bid by the soldier’s family for Cpl McLaughlin to receive official recognition, telling them it was ‘simply not possible after this amount of time’ to look again at the case. But now Anna Soubry, the Government Minister for Defence Personnel, Welfare and Veterans, has told this newspaper that the Ministry of Defence will make ‘rigorous and extensive enquiries into his case on behalf of his family’.
