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 Guardsman BROWNs Section became involved in a fierce fire fight. Disregarding his own safety, with considerable coolness he exposed himself to enemy fire abd using his machine gun with devastating effect killed several of the enemy. Inspired by his example, his Section fought their way through the enemys position.

For his fine example and bravery in action, Guardsman BROWN is strongly recommended for Mention in Despatches.
