  2. OPORD OPERATION ABSOLON III TO: A COY, 2 PARA BN. FROM: SILBOT, LT, OC 1 PLT, A COY, 2 PARA BN. SUBJECT: OPERATION ABSOLON III 052000ZJUL20 ++++++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++++++ I. PRELIMS TIME: 0400L 11TH JUNE 1982 WEATHER: Clear skies, foggy, chance of rain and snow CURRENT POS: 2 PARA STAGING AREA, Falkland Islands TASK ORG; 10A: Lt Silbot 10B: Sgt Scarle 11C: Cpl Ainsley 12C: Cpl Joyce 13C: Cpl McPherson 41A: Cpl Cullen 43A: LCpl Keeling 44A: LCpl Tasner II.SITUATION The conflict began on 2 April, when Argentina invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands, followed by the invasion of South Georgia the next day. On 5 April, the British government dispatched a naval task force to engage the Argentine Navy and Air Force before making an amphibious assault on the islands. We are tasked with reclaiming the capital city of Port Stanley and its outlying hamlets. i.GROUND The Falkland Islands have a land area of 4,700 square miles (12,000 km2) and a coastline estimated at 800 miles (1,300 km). The archipelago consists of two main islands, West Falkland and East Falkland, and about 776 smaller islands. The islands are predominantly mountainous and hilly, with the major exception being the depressed plains of Lafonia (a peninsula forming the southern part of East Falkland). The islands are located in the South Atlantic Ocean, on the Patagonian Shelf, about 300 miles (480 km) east of Patagonia in southern Argentina. ii.ENEMY FORCES Known & Suspected En. Positions: As of mid-April it is estimated that the Argentine forces number 10,000 troops. However, it is known that these are poorly trained conscripts. We now know that the Argentine Forces are refusing to surrender and are willing to fight to the last man to retain the Falkland Islands. Strength: 602 Commando Company under Major Aldo Rico. 4th Monte Caseros Infantry Regiment (RI 4) under Lieutenant Colonel Diego Alejandro. Remaining scattered units from the islands already taken areas. Morale: High. Weaponry: FAL 7.62, FN MAG, M20 “Super Bazooka” an assortment of WW2 bolt action rifles used in the Sniper role. IDF: 82mm PODNOS, OTO Melara Mod 56, CITER L33 Guns Vehicles: None Aircraft: A4 Skyhawk, Pucara. Mine/IED Threat: HIGH iii. ENEMY INTENT To repel the British forces attempt to reclaim the Islands iv. FRIENDLY FORCES 2 & 3 Parachute Regiment 800 Naval Air Squadron based on HMS Hermes 3 Commando Brigade 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery 5 Infantry Brigade 22 SAS HMS Hermes III. MISSION To reclaim the city of Port Stanley and its outlying hamlets. IV. OWN MAIN EFFORT This will be a 6 phase operation! WE ARE UNDER BOMBARDMENT FROM ARTILLERY. DO NOT VENTURE OUTSIDE OF MT WILLIAM UNLESS ORDERED TO DO SO. Phase 1 FST are move North toward the suspected enemy Artillery/Anti Air position firing upon Mt William. Once they have it under observation, and are sure of no civilian presence, they will call in the fighters from HMS Hermes to eliminate it. No flight assets are to leave HMS Hermes until the call from FST is given. 4-1 are to make a rapid assault onto Objective Black. They are to secure this for use as a fire base for their mortars. With that in mind, no heavy munitions can be used to clear Objective Black. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 are to move North toward Olwyn House . This is the first staging area. From Olwyn House they are to clear Objective Blue. Once secure this will be the CCP and Logistic centre for further operations. 4-3 are to trail behind 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and will respond as ATO to any discovered Mines or enemy munitions. They will also be required when not dealing with the above, to be handling Logistics request and reinsertion's. 4-4 are to attach themselves where they or the Coy commander sees fit. However one medic must be retained in Objective Blue. Phase 2 FST once the Artillery and Anti Air has been destroyed are to radio into the company so that the supply Helicopter is safe to travel. They are then to link up Coy command and provide CAS and Mortar control for the assault on Objectives Orange, Red, Green and Purple. 4-1 are expected to provide Mortar support to the Coy. However, we estimate that Objective Black is a key observation post and it is most likely that Argentine forces will try and recover it. It must be held at all costs. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 are to clear through sector Orange. This will be a two up with 1-1 in reserve. 1-2 are to take the left side of the Objective and 1-3 the right. Phase 3 Once Objective Orange is secure 1-2 and 1-3 will hold on its eastern outskirts. 1-1 are to move forward and secure the POW camp. If any prisoners are being held there, they are to call in 4-4 to remove them to Objective Blue. Phase 4 1-2 and 1-3 are to link up with 1-1 and begin the assault through Objective Yellow. This will be three- up with no reserve. 1-1 on the left, 1-2 in the centre and 1-3 on the right. Phase 5 1-1 and 1-3 are to begin a slow push through Objective Red. 1-2 will break off and push through Sector Purple. There initial advance will be covered by smoke from 4-1. Phase 6 1-2 and 1-3 are to clear Objective Green. Once Objective Green is held, the Coy is to hold firm and await further orders from HQ. VI.

Phase 1 FSG and FST will move towards the western base of Mount Kent. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 will move to the western base of Mount Challenger. Phase 2 FSG and FST will move up the western side of Mount Kent. The objective is to clear any enemy positions as this is beleived to be the observation post for Argentine Artillery. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 will move up the western face of Mount Challenger. We believe that this is the first of one of several major Argentine positions. Phase 3 Once Mount Kent is clear FSG will work in conjunction with FST to provide artillery and CAS onto the defenders left on Mount Challenger. VI.

On 5 April, the British government dispatched a naval task force to engage the Argentine Navy and Air Force before making an amphibious assault on the islands. We are tasked with the retaking of the town of Darwin and of Goose Green with the aim of repelling Argentine forces from the island. i.GROUND The Falkland Islands have a land area of 4,700 square miles (12,000 km2) and a coastline estimated at 800 miles (1,300 km).

  5. Gents, Should you at some point you wish to transfer to another section or element, you must do the following.. Send a PM to the OC requesting the transfer and the reasoning behind it. You must include the IC of your current section and the one you wish to transfer to and also the head of RRO. You must provide a good enough reason "My mates are in that section" is not adequate. If the OC deems it unnecessary, you will not transfer.
  6. L/Cpl Brodie Gillon, a reservist who served as a frontline medic with the Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry, and volunteered for a deployment in Iraq this year. The 26-year-old was killed when 18 rockets struck the Camp Taji base, 25 miles (40km) north of Baghdad, in an attack that the US said was conducted by an Iranian proxy group operating in Iran, probably Kataib Hezbollah. Gillon’s commanding officer, Lt Col William Leek, said she was a “hugely popular character”. “She had already achieved a great deal in her relatively short time with us and it was abundantly clear that she was destined for great things in her civilian and military careers,” he said. “Her loss is keenly felt.” Wallace said: “From the warm testimonies of those who served with her, it’s clear that L/Cpl Gillon was held in the highest regard and was a shining example of what our armed forces and reserves stand for, inspiring those around her and always putting others first.” Pervigilans L/Cpl Brodie Gillon
  7. A Coy rapidly deploys to snow covered northern Europe to repel a Russian attack from the Barents sea.
  8. Private Joseph Berry died of a non-battle injury while deployed on operations in Kabul, Afghanistan, on February 22. Private Joseph Berry - who served with the Second Battalion of the Parachute Regiment - had achieved his lifetime ambition when he became a paratrooper. Joseph had been deployed to Afghanistan since last November where he had served as a rifleman providing security for advisors. It was his first operational deployment. Lieutenant Colonel Matt Taylor said the death would be 'felt deeply'. He said: "The death of this exceptional and compassionate paratrooper is truly heart-breaking and his loss will be felt deeply by his family, friends and those who served alongside him. We extend our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to all who knew and loved him." Utrinque Paratus Private Joseph Berry
  9. Yeah when you want to drop. Just switch the light to green. It's gonna be important for you guys to go as slow as you can. The DZ is small, but it is possible.
  10. Not without fannying around with all. It's not rocket science to pop your own chute and if they bork it up they respawn on the dropzone anyway.
  11. Memento II Paradrop Instructions Pilots will have control of a light system in the plane. It will be on red. At the appropriate time called by the pilots, the Jump Master will open the door. This is the signal for Everyone to stand up. This is done using the scroll wheel action "Stand Up". When the light turns green the Jump Master will jump. You will then jump using the scroll wheel action "Eject" when the person standing in front of you jumps. Do not wait more than 1-2 seconds if the person in front of you doesn't jump, just jump yourself. Everyone must jump on the first pass, there will be no second try. If you fail to jump first time round you must return to the Aerodrome and await reinsertion. You are responsible for opening your own Parachute. This is done via a scroll wheel action "Open Chute".
  12. 22 Field Hospital attached to 1 Battalion Coldstream Guards at Wellington Barracks with JMH (Maj-Gen JMH Bowder???). Now he is a Civil Servant with Foreign and Commonwealth Office and is shagging the Commander of the Field Army's (Ivan Jones) daughter who I believe is called Sophie.
  13. Can FSG have a designation in Discord please
