With the British Army’s 5 Brigade separated from their vital communications vehicles back at Goose Green, F4 under the command of C/Sgt Brian Johnston was been dispatched in poorly charted waters and under significant threat of air attack.

In a remarkable feat of pilotage, in darkness and without modern navigational aids, Brian Johnston reached Goose Green in good order and loaded the vehicles

Shortly afterwards, the landing craft was bombed and sunk by Argentine Skyhawks and all but two of LCU F4’s crew were killed including:

C/Sgt Johnston

Mechanical Engineering Artificer (Propulsion)) A S James

Sergeant R J Rotherham

Leading Marine Engineer (Mechanical) D Miller

Marine A J Rundle

Marine R D Griffin.
