IAN DAVIDSON - 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
During the assault, Lance Sergeant DAVIDSONs Section became pinned down by accurate enemy sniper fire. Showing a total disregard for his own safety, Lance Sergeant DAVIDSON moved amongst his men encouraging and steadying them. Inspired by his courageous example, they fought their way forward and destroyed two enemy positions.
For his courage under fire and selfless leadership, Lance Sergeant DAVIDSON is strongly recommended for mention in Despatches
