The Empire Strikes Back - Retaking South Georgia 1982

'Be pleased to inform Her Majesty that the White Ensign flies alongside the Union Jack in South Georgia. God save the Queen!' - Royal Navy Captain Brian YoungDSO.

Operation Paraquet was the British operation to retake the Antarctic island of South Georgia from Argentina in April 1982. Click here for my earlier video about the Argentine capture of South Georgia: https://youtu.be/FTRHJQFbN8o

  1. Wow! Thanks for posting that! That's the most detail I have gotten about that.



Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
