Corporal Stewart McLaughlin served in B Company, Third Battalion, The Parachute Regiment and was killed during the battle for Mount Longdon in the Falklands War. He was a key figure in the Company’s attack, leading and supporting numerous assaults on the enemy. His supreme personal bravery and exemplary leadership was noticed by many during the battle and has consistently been acknowledged by the comrades who fought alongside him, by many senior military officers and by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. Despite this, he has never been formally recognised for his actions which contributed significantly to the victory achieved by the battalion. We call on the government to amend the Armed Forces Awards system to enable retrospective awards to be made in exceptional circumstances and to formally recognise Cpl McLaughlin for his outstanding gallantry and leadership.
