argentine occupation

Argentine snapshot showing an Argentine soldier from Batallon de Infanteria Marina 5 (5 BIM) on Mount Tumbledown during the Argentine occupation of the Falkland Islands. The soldier is wearing a British Second World War style helmet (probably looted as a souvenir from the Falkland Islands Defence Force (FIDF) stores in Port Stanley) and is carrying a Ballester Molina pistol under his left arm. This photograph was one of many confiscated from Argentine prisoners by 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines Intelligence Section.
