Councilor Richard Cockwell, the governor with responsibilities for Fisheries has responded to complaints of the levels of squid fishing in the high seas by Argentina with a letter to the Argentine press.
IN April 1982 a British Task Force began its journey South tasked with liberating the Falkland Islands from its Argentine invaders.
Sailing with that force was Julian Thompson, Commander of 40 Commando Royal Marines and 3 Commando Brigade.
He was joint commander of the amphibious landings and overall Land Commander until the arrival of Major General Jeremy Moore in the Islands at the end of May.
Julian Thompson's brigade saw action in most of the battles of the 1982 Falklands campaign.
