Wessex HU5 (XQ) 847 NAS Rescues Sir Galahad Survivors at Bluff Cove, Falkla

Wessex HU5 (XQ) of 847 Naval Air Squadron, piloted by Lieutenant Tim Hughes with Aircrew Chief Petty Officer Bill Tuttey, was the only helicopter of this type to take part in the rescue of survivors from RFA Sir Galahad and RFA Sir Tristram at Bluff Cove on 8 June 1982. After a short time assisting casualties, the helicopter started to run low on fuel but rather than leave the area, the aircraft was landed on the burning Sir Tristram and refueled there, allowing it to return to its rescue mission without delay. The well-known Falklands War soldier, Simon Weston OBE, is among those that were rescued by this flight.
