Falklands Casevac, Ajax Bay, 28th May 1982 by David Shepherd.


Falklands Casevac, Ajax Bay, 28th May 1982 by David Shepherd.

During the fierce fighting on 28/29 May 1982 in the battle for Goose Green, the first major land battle of the Falklands campaign, a detachment of Scout helicopters from 656 Squadron Army Air Corps operated in support of 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment. Their main task was flying ammunition to the forward companies and evacuating thirty two seriously wounded soldiers to the Field Surgical Team established in the disused refrigeration plant at Ajax Bay. Flying operations continued throughout the night in appalling weather and irrespective of bombing attacks by Argentinean aircraft on the Fleet in San Carlos Water. This painting depicts a near-miss from a mirage fighter bomber on the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Stromness and the Europic Ferry. Captain J G Greenhalgh, Scout detachment commander and pilot of XT649 was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his gallantry during this battle. The painting shows him in his aircraft with his aircrewman Cpl J F Gammon, alongside. During the campaign over 400 casualties were swiftly evacuated by helicopters of 3 Commando Brigade Air Squadron Royal Marines and 656 Squadron Army Air Corps and all survived.
