    Default Falklands & Medals

    Curious about medals awarded during the Falklands campaign. I believe a total of 127 ships were involved in the conflict. 43 RN Vessels, 22 RFA vessels and 62 merchant vessels. Anyone know if any of those 62 Merchant vessels were foreign flag ships?
    If there were foreign flag vessels, did those who sailed on those ships qualify for the South Atlantic Medal?
