It put 8500 men ashore on a hostile coast and fought several pitched battles against the enemy. And brought them to surrender within three and a half weeks.” This is the story of the Welsh Guards…

The cartoon strip documents my experience as an eighteen-year-old Welsh Guardsman in active service during the conflict. It depicts a chronological build up to our time spent fighting on the Island and is a first hand account.
