The medal mounted as originally worn
826 Squadron flew eleven Sea King Helicopters from HMS Hermes and later Port San Carlos during the Falklands War its Commanding Officer Lieutenant Commander John Smiley Squier, Royal Navy was awarded the Air Force Cross London Gazette 8 October 1982 his recommendation illustrates the role of the Squadron
'Lieutenant Commander Squier displayed outstanding leadership as Commanding Officer 826 Squadron during the Falklands conflict. He held his Squadron together and maintained their exceptionally high morale through what must be one of the longest sustained periods of continuous intensive flying in the history of British aviation, meeting every task however difficult and dangerous with determination and enthusiasm. An example of this attitude was the night of the SAS raid on Pebble Island, when atrocious weather and winds of up to 75 knots forced the escorts to slow leaving HMS HERMES to proceed alone. Notwithstanding the conditions, which were way outside the limits for helicopter operations, Lieutenant Commander Squier unhesitatingly led his men to provide necessary anti submarine defence and surface warning for the Carrier so that operations could continue. The Squadron lost two aircraft during the Falklands operation induced by operational flying pressure and without loss of life, but resolution remained remarkably firm. The great courage and outstanding contribution of Lieutenant Commander Squier's large Squadron with 60 Aircrew, stems from the superb personal example he as a Commanding Officer set by his own calm and dedicated bravery in the air'.

With details of service written and signed by recipient. Not no service number has been engraved on the medal (his number is 25152675) the medal mounted court style as worn.
Timothy Herrnicht joined the Royal Signals in April 2002 and specialized as an Area Systems Engineer Satellite Communications. Herrnicht served in Afghanistan from June to October 2004 in the Mazaar-e-Sharif District patrolling the North West area of Afghanistan with the Military Observation Teams (MOTS) reconnaissance and intelligence gathering operations. During the period December 2005 to February 2006 he participated in the Pakistan Earthquake relief operations attached to 59 Commando Royal Engineers and assisted in rebuilding work. A second period on operations in Afghanistan February to April 2009 as part of the main communications from Camp Bastion back to the UK followed. Herrnicht left the Army in February 2010. From Defence News dated 19 December 2005
'As the England Cricket Test team rested before their next international, another Englishman took to the field in the earthquake ravaged town of Bagh, Pakistan. Signaler Tim Herrnicht fielding for Iqra Pilot High School as they take another wicket. Signaller Tim Herrnicht was invited to watch the local Sunday cricket match with members of Britain's 59 Independent Commando Squadron Royal Engineers, who are building winter shelters in isolated mountain villages. The match, between Bagh's Iqra Pilot High School and the Degree School was intended to help rehabilitate the devastated community after October's earthquake, and to bring some normality and fun back into the youngsters' lives. Iqra's Captain and English teacher, Syed Ali, approached the British soldiers for an additional team member.
Tim, from Southampton, was a keen cricketer at school and was more than willing to join in the match. He soon found himself playing in front of four hundred spectators including Major General Qasim, the Pakistani Officer in charge of the area since the earthquake. Tim had an exceptional performance in the outfield, but his bowling struggled to come to terms with the wicket and was dispatched several times to the boundary by some enthusiastic batting. However with a total of 234 to beat, it was Tim, batting in the middle order, who helped to partner a gripping finale with his opposite scoring three sixes in three balls to seal victory. Tim became an immediate local celebrity acknowledging huge cheers from the crowd when he received his trophy from Gen Qasim and being interviewed by a local television station.

HMS Intrepid (L11) was one of two Fearless class amphibious warfare ships of the Royal Navy. A Landing Platform Dock (LPD), she served from 1967 until 1999. Based in HM Naval Base, Devonport, Plymouth, Devon and HM Naval Base Portsmouth and saw service around the world over her 32 year life.
In the process of being decommissioned for sale, she was rapidly returned to service to sail as part of the British operation to retake the Falkland Islands after the Argentine invasion in 1982. She landed troops in amphibious assaults on the Islands and the Argentine surrender was signed on her deck at the conclusion of the Falklands War.
Intrepid was the second of her class of purpose built LPDs used by Royal Navy, built in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, at the John Brown & Company yard she was launched in 1964 before undergoing trials and commissioning in 1967. Incidentally, she was the last ship built by John Brown & Co for the Royal Navy.
Intrepid was undergoing decommissioning in 1982 at the outbreak of the Falklands War. After decommissioning, the Royal Navy were due to sell Intrepid to Argentina. However, Intrepid was brought back into commission, with her ship's company recalled by Commander Bryn Telfer (the Executive Officer), and Malcolm MacLeod, the crew gladly returned to form part of the task group committed to Operation Corporate, the British effort to recapture the islands. Intrepid was commanded by Captain Peter Dingemans.
With elements of 3 Commando Brigade embarked, Intrepid took part in the amphibious landings at San Carlos Water. HMS Intrepid was under attack in San Carlos Water on 25 May 1982, with a few fatalities, mainly Royal Marines. The Nordic Ferry was also under attack. She came under heavy air attack once again during the operation, and was the main participant in the landings at Bluff Cove on 6 June. Margaret Thatcher and Sandy Woodward commended the efforts of the ships involved in the San Carlos attacks.
She Intrepid would be the last ship to arrive, the last piece in the jigsaw, and so all the timings depended on her.
As well as being one of the warships used for imprisoning the Argentinian prisoners of war, the surrender ending the Falklands conflict was signed on Intrepid's deck. From 1985 until 1990 she supported the sea training phase of initial officer training, undertaken at Britannia Royal Naval College, as part of the Dartmouth Training Squadron.
South Atlantic Medal (Falklands) with Rosette to: SUB. LT. N.L. HOWARD. H.M.S. PENELOPE
Upon commissioning, Penelope joined the 20th Frigate Squadron which was based in the United Kingdom. In 1966 Penelope underwent a refit that rerolled her into a trials ship and led to the removal of much of her weaponry including her twin 4.5-in gun turret.
In 1968, Penelope assisted in the aftermath of the Air Lingus Flight 712 crash in the Irish Sea. There has been a number of conspiracy theories about the crash, including the alleged involvement of Penelope. The theory goes that Penelope, while performing tests, mistook the aircraft for a target drone and shot her down. All conspiracy theories have been refuted by the Ministry of Defense.
The following year, Penelope was present in West Germany during the Kiel Week festival which combined a yachting race and festival events. Penelope took part in a variety of tests in the 1970s, including Sea Wolf missile tests in 1977. In 1981, she was fitted with the Exocet missile with the intention of testing it.
In 1982, Penelope took part in the Falklands War as part of "Bristol group", which included two other Leander-class ships - Minerva and Andromeda - and did not reach the Falkland Islands area of operations until 26 May. Upon arrival, Penelope mainly performed escort duties, including escorting the damaged Argonaut in late May, who had suffered damage after being hit by cannon fire and bombs.
On 13 June, Penelope's Lynx helicopter struck the already stranded Argentinian patrol boat Rio Iguazu with a Sea Skua missile. Penelope returned home in September 1982.
Soon after, Penelope undertook a Falklands patrol in the tense aftermath of the war, and did not return home until June 1983. The following year, she deployed to the South Atlantic yet again, patrolling and performing other duties in that region. In 1988 Penelope suffered a machinery breakdown and collided with the starboard side of the Canadian supply ship Preserver during a replenishment. Penelope caught the Preserver's starboard anchor, cutting her port side open. The Canadian vessel suffered $260,000 damage, while Penelope suffered damage estimated in the million
