On the night of 13/14 June 1982, on the Island of east Falkland, the 2nd Battalion Scots Guards attacked well entrenched enemy position on the craggy ridge feature of Tumbledown Mountain, seven kilometers to the West of Port Stanley

During the assault, whilst closing on a strongly held enemy Platoon position, Lance Sergeant DALGLEISH's section came under heavy enemy artillery and mortar fire. Disregarding the dangers and despite being heavily outnumbered he rallied his section in the attack and overran the enemy's position. Their brave action contributed significantly to the successful outcome of the battle.

For his fine leadership and courage under fire, Lance Sergeant DALGLEISH is strongly recommended for Mention in Despatches.
