Falklands Combat Medics

Bombed, attacked, dangerously low on medical supplies and frequently cut off from the British fleet. Welcome to Ajax Bay - the main Falklands field hospital.

This unit and the men who ran it, including a captured Argentine doctor, dealt with casualties from both sides from every major engagement during the war. They had one clear aim. No casualty, no matter to which side they owed allegiance, no matter how horrifically injured, would be allowed to die on their watch…

The unit was so successful that after the war, the hospital’s senior Surgeon Commander, Dr Rick Jolly, was decorated by both sides; a unique feat for a British serviceman.

These are Falklands Combat Medics - and this is the last untold story of the Falklands War.
