The CO was Captain Paul Kehoe. I was CO of SIR TRISTRAM that took over from PERCY in early 2001 and the CO by then was Alan Roach and Ian Moores the XO but pretty sure it was Paul for the OP when the jungle hostages were rescued.

Cheers Shaun. Info passed to the Falklands CO of Percy who is looking to pass on a bit of Freetown memorabilia. We might need his email by PM if afloat just now?
