South Atlantic Soldier
Welsh born Tony Gomez was orphaned in 1944. His Spanish father had been lost at sea before he was born. A Museum Curator with a PHD he has parallel career in the Territorial Army SAS.
Fluent in Spanish, with two years post-graduate work on the Falkland Islands under his belt, he is nearing the end of his SAS service. The forty one year old is mobilized with fellow TA soldier Yorkie Barnes to join the British task force sailing to the Falklands.
Ex Para, boxing champ Barnes, left secondary school at fifteen. He is chalk to Gomez’s cheese. It is their first taste of war. Inserted behind enemy lines, they contact a regular SAS patrol to interrogate an Argentine air force pilot.
The regulars, consider them amateurs, unfit to wear the SAS badge. Friction boils over into violence. Running firefights, test the amateurs to the limit but give them a chance to prove themselves.
Recovering from wounds aboard a hospital ship, Tony Gomez stumbles across a shocking link to his past, which questions everything he has been told of his family history. Ten troubled years later he returns to the Falklands to find and lay a ghost.
