Memories of a soldiers bravery

The government is being called on to formally recognise the incredible bravery of a paratrooper who died more than thirty years ago during the Falklands Conflict. A special debate took place in Parliament as MPs discussed the case of Corporal Stewart McLaughlin from Wallasey. He was killed in the decisive battle for Mount Longdon in 1982 and recommended for a Victoria Cross which he never received.

He told Granada Reports about his memories of the night Stewart was killed and his role in the battle.
