GARY TYTLER - MID

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

For over three hours, Lance Corporal TYTLERs Platoon were pinned down by intense enemy artillery and small arms fire. Realising that firm action was needed, he led his section in a determined assault, personally killing several enemy in their trenches as his section overran the enemys position. His resolute leadership and courageous action enabled initiative for the attack to be regained.

Lance Corporal TYTLER is very strongly recommended for Mention in Despatches.
