Michael Clapp


Commodore Michael Clapp was given command of the of the Amphibious Task Force and had the job of selecting a suitable landing area and delivering the troops ashore safely.

He selected San Carlos Water as the most appropriate place and conducted an efficient amphibious landing. Problems occurred when the Argentine Air Force became aware of the British action and launched aerial assaults on the waiting ships. Fortunately for the British amphibious operation, they concentrated on the picket and guard ships rather than the all-important troop ships.
