At 0600hrs GMT. The people of this island were caught napping when 500 Argentinian soldiers came ashore at Fox Bay on West Falkland.
The Junta Marines headed inland and established a spearhead just north of the popular tourist attraction. The small army was supported by a Russian tank and a couple of stolen British Howitzers.
Mr Trimble Soffet, local tea room owner explained the situation.
"I went down there at about six thirtyish, and asked them what they were doing, a Colonel Mario Miguel informed me that they had invaded the home of their forefathers and would be kicking the British pigs off the land of their president. I warned them there would be trouble, and if they knew what was good for them they should leave before our boys turned up".
Mrs Monty, from the post office, informed the police, and a message was passed to General HQ in Whitehall.
The next day, two off duty SAS officers, holidaying on the island, were dispatched to observe and update the government on the Argentinian army and its movements.
The following evening, the two SAS soldiers strolled down to Fox Bay and told the Argy army to "fuck off"; "Or our other two mates would be coming along to teach you cheeky wankers a lesson".
The Argentinian government denied they had gone to invade, and were only there on a short weekend break. Asked why they left so quickly;
Colonel Miguel said; "We ran out of money".
