    Either FIG forgot- or misquote by Mercopress but if he is one of the recently exhumed and identified - he IS now in a proper coffin.
    Hope it will bring peace and goodwill to his family to have him back near to them.

    As announced by me months ago... and this won’t be the last by any stretch of Think’s imagination. It’s very heartening for the families of lost Argentine soldiers that they can now have their loved ones’ remains returned home.

    It has taken far too long to reach this stage, but at last the widow can have her wishes respected. All those responsible for causing this lady to wait so long should be thoroughly ashamed.

    Mr. Islander1...
    “In which case article is correct...” you say...
    Not quite..., I say...
    Ms. Castagnari declares that it is not “her” wish..., but the expressed wish of her late husband..., to be buried besides their late first baby son in continental Argentina..., should he die recovering the Malvinas...

    Mr.Jo Bloggs...
    “It’s very heartening for the families of lost Argentine soldiers that they can now have their loved ones’ remains returned home”..., you say...
    Stop the hypocrisy..., I say... I know that you know that we all here know you are being an hypocrit...

    Mr.. Roger Lorton...
    “Look's like Think has been exhumed too”..., you say...
    The report of my death was obviously an exaggeration..., I say...

    Mr. GALlamosa...
    “All those responsible for causing this lady to wait so long should be thoroughly ashamed”...., you say...
    All those responsible for widowing this lady should be thoroughly ashamed..., I say...

    Stop the hypocrisy..., I say... you know that we all here know that you are the biggest hypocrite on this site. It was you who charged me with a demand for evidence when I first said on here that this was going to happen. You INSISTED on the name of the family that wanted their loved one returned to their homeland in Argentina... rather than leaving them on foreign soil.

    Hopefully, the fact she doesn't want him returned because he's in foreign soil, but because she promised to bury him next to their baby son, means the Argentine government will actually agree to her request rather than refusing for political reasons.

    It said in the article she didn't have time to pursue the matter until she retired in 2014, which explains most of the long wait.

    @Think
    I bet if anyone at all is ashamed it'll be whoever dropped the bombs, and not those responsible for starting an unnecessary war.

    I mentioned some months ago that repatriation(S) were under consideration. Not sure of the current situation. I shall try to discover more.

    Glad to see that you are still kicking Think.

    I think this is a very positive sign for all those affected families who would love to have the graves of their loved ones closer to home where they can visit them. How good would it be if the decision was entirely up to the families themselves. If they feel strongly enough that their lost loved one would want to stay where they are, well so be it. But if they would like to have them returned to closer to home, what a great potential opportunity this appears to be.

    The hypocrites in all of this are anyone supporting the stance that the bodies are already interred at home.
