Honours & Awards:
Marine Gary Marshall was awarded the Military Medal for his gallantry during operations on the Falkland Islands.
CitationDuring the night 8th/9th June 1982, on the Island of East Falkland, Marine Marshall was on patrol in the area of the Two Sisters feature, ten kilometres to the west of Port Stanley. Disregarding his personal safety, Marine Marshall dashed across open moonlit ground through enemy fire to secure a vital position. That done, using his machine gun, he engaged and destroyed the two enemy machine gun posts that had dominated the area. His action was inspiring and enabled his Troop to safely withdraw to secure positions. Source London Gazette 49134, page 12841.
