Yes, you're right, it was Goose Green during the Falklands War of 1982.

It's all yours Waleed...

If you wouldn't have written 60s, I would have guessed Edward Fox, the actor - but of course he was more a 70s man...

Hi Waleed,
Hope your well! Would it be Antony Charles Robert Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, GCVO, RDI?

All well here, hope the same goes for you.

I will confirm the photographer bit being Lord Snowdon! Yes, he took the picture.
(not the picture in the picture, but the actual picture... :D )

Here's another famous face:
An author who had much to do with
the "mystery face". He too got into trouble!

COME ON NOW!
Inselaffe (of WWI quiz fame!) has already confirmed the identity of the famous "Face"
in PM correspondence :wink:

Robb, as far as I know the last person (last image posted) emigrated to Australia
so as to get a book published which was going to be banned at home!
