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, Lance Corporal RENNIEs platoon came under a hail of accurate fire from an enemy machine gun. His Platoon commander was seriously wounded in the head. Unhestitatingly, Lance Corporal RENNIE crawled forward, under continuing intense enemy machine gun fire, to rescue his platoon commander.

His decisive action, courage and disregard for his own safety undoubtedly saved his officers life. Lance Corporal RENNIE is strongly recommended for Mention in Despatches.
