    It's remarkable just how many conscripts didn't collect their ID cards when they stepped off the Canberra, Uganda, Norland and others when they arrived back in Argentina. Their ID cards were actually taken as laid down by the Geneva Convention. The fact that this guy didn't claim his papers back is his own fault.
    Perhaps the Argentine government will be moved to return Sir Rex Hunt's medals.

    It’s remarkable they arrived back in Argentina at all considering all those ships had been sunk, one of them twice.

    Interesting to see what if anything the Met do about it, where is The Thailand Cozzer when you need him?

    Either way probably going to be difficult to find them now.

    I totally agree with you. I have never heard that Mr. Rex Hunt's personal belonging were taken by argentine militars.

    Seem to recall, that the issuer owns the ID card, not the recipient.
    Perhaps it is different in Argieland?
