Local Roll of Honour: 

Marine Anthony Rundle  died during operations in the Falklands. He was attached to Task Force Landing Craft Squadron RM. He was  on board Landing Craft Utility F4 from HMS Fearless during the Falklands Conflict in 1982. With the British Army’s 5 Brigade separated from their vital communications vehicles back at Goose Green, F4 under the command of C/Sgt Brian Johnston had been dispatched in poorly charted waters and under significant threat of air attack.  In a remarkable feat of pilotage, in darkness and without modern navigational aids, they reached Goose Green in good order and loaded the vehicles.

Shortly afterwards, the landing craft was bombed and sunk by Argentine Skyhawks and all but two of LCU F4’s crew were killed including C/Sgt Johnston, Sergeant R J Rotheram, Marine R D Griffin, Marine A J Rundle, Mechanical Engineering Artificer (Propulsion)) A S James,  and Leading Marine Engineer (Mechanical) D Miller.
