    Very nice, if it is your collection -- congratulations.

    Do you know which one of these decorations was awarded Argentinian national hero of the Falklands War TT de Navio Owen Guillermo Crippa, a pilot of MB-339 light attack aircraft?

    Best regards

    Hi Gregory,
    You should ask Panzerknacker since Erwin (errr... Sturmtruppen ) is a retired member.

    Thank you very much. English-language literature has always described this medal as the highest Argentinian decoration, something like the Argentinian counterpart of the US CMH or British VC.

    Thanks, best regards

    Well, the Naval merit Medal is more an award for the long career seamen, although it can be awarded for combat merits.

    Crippa as mostly of the veterans received this..."El congreso de la Nacion a los combatientes" , but is more like a campaing badge because it was awarded for participate in the war only and does not take account the war actions.

    ANy info on the picture of Crippas attack?

    I think that is the Narwhal in the back ground (a civialian stuft vessel).

    Is HMS Ardent or Argonaught being brassed up?
    If you post idiocy, don't get upset if you are seen as an idiot.... I don't.

    Here endth the lesson.




    Have you seen any combat?

    Seen a little on TV.

    You talk the talk, but do you walk the walk?

    Default Argonaut Attack

    Hi All,

    I read with interest your info regarding the attachk on HMS Argonaut.

    I was Heavily involved in this attack in being on the flightdeck of the ship at the time.

    The MB339 came out of the sun and fired Rockets and followed through with a short burst of cannon, these went through the 965 radar and ran accross the hangar roof (I heard the rounds strike as we ran inside.

    I have attached a picture of the Ships Flightdeck Crew, this was taken very shortly before the launch of the Lynx moments before the 1st attack.

    For those Interested I am the one with the orange mug on my waist in the middle of the picture

    Borders, must be as that’s the only thing the SMG would be useful for.

    The guys on the left are the same as the rest of us, "Jumpy" towards the end of out time there we are even getting excited seeing seagulls oftem mistaking them for distant aircraft - You get like that sometimes.

    Memory fades with time but I believe it was the sound of distant gunfire starting which caused them to look

    One thing after these 25 Years that I don't think people have mentioned, and we talked of often back then when we returned, was the healthy respect we had of the Argentine pilots and their skills, we were amazed at how well they flew the A4's especially.

    The SMG was carried by Aircrew in case of Emergency

    Yes it does, one other point on the Crippa attack, the aircraft came from the Port(Left side) and above the height of the ship from out of the sun as I recall, Had the attack taken place as depicted in the 2 paintings that are available, I would no doubt not be here to tell the tale, the attack was so fast that we actually thought one of our missiles had fired by accident!

    I was stood in front of the Hangar at the time about 1/4 the way out on the flight deck with one of the other mechanics - it was close enough for me.

    I notice you are in Argentina, were you in the Argentine Military?
