Farewell Captain Jolly

Surgeon Capt Rick Jolly has died

Quote:
A Royal Navy medical officer who saved the lives of hundreds of British and Argentine troops during the Falklands War has died, aged 71.
Working amid terrible conditions in the field, Surgeon Capt Rick Jolly, from Torpoint, Cornwall, saved the life of every British serviceman he treated.
He is the only person to have been decorated by both Britain and Argentina for his service during the conflict.

Thank you starting the thread, Mark V

The only serviceman to have been decorated by both sides in an armed conflict.

I liked both his description of the OBE (Other B*gg*rs' Efforts) and that the only person he could ask about wearing his, "Enemy," decoration (Officer of the Orden de Mayo) told him to wear it on all appropriate occasions.

I loved one of his little anecdotes, though;

The British were planning a major offensive, so he asked for helicopters to transfer his existing patients to the Canberra to create space for casualties. After being told that all the helicopters were busy, he was astounded to find a stream of them turning up. He couldn't stop laughing when he heard the explanation.

It seemed that a chef on the Canberra was getting a little stir-crazy, so to, "Do his bit," every time a helicopter landed on board, he'd send up tea and bacon rolls for the crew. The helicopter crews were doing a couple of supply runs, dropping in at Atlas Bay, then nipping of for their tea and bacon rolls.

You risk upsetting our Finnish posters. I believe that Marshal Mannerheim managed to achieve this in both WW1 and WW2 but perhaps they will forgive me if I say that this was in a much less altruistic manner. I wonder if some Italians may have done the same in WW2!

I watched the documentary that showed him and his surgical team working while an unexploded 500lb bomb quietly watched them from the roof of the sheep shed they were in.
A great man.
