South Atlantic Medal – Qualifying Date Extension

From Andrew Williams:

I see (http://www.veterans-uk.info/medals/20140730-%20Guidance%20-%20Medal%20Review-new.pdf) that the qualifying date for the South Atlantic Medal (without rosette) is extended from 12 July 1982 to 21 October 1982 “when the airfield at Mount Pleasant was completed.”

A couple of things spring to mind. Whilst I have a comprehensive photographic record of our Autumn ’82 to Spring ’83 detachment Down South, I don’t have exact dates – does anyone? I think we got there after 21 October, early November time.

Secondly, I don’t think RAF Mount Pleasant was completed in 1982; it wasn’t even started than!
