Talk by Falklands Veteran Steven Duffy
We’re delighted that our Falklands War veteran speaker is Pipe Major Steven Duffy.
2nd Battalion Scots Guards, F Company, Uniform Reconnaissance Platoon.
Steven saw action with his company at Port Harriet and Goat Ridge. He was then injured while taking part in the diversionary action which was part of the Battle for Tumbledown. The diversion attack called for the men to crawl to within 200m of the enemy position and then go 'noisy' – Steven certainly has a compelling and powerful story to tell. He will support the telling of his story through the medium of the bagpipe. A military piper’s tale, a story not often told...
