Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment and Royal Yeomanry Soldiers Acquitted of Fighting in the Falkland Islands

James Hay and Anthony Waller represented two of the three soldiers accused of Fighting other soldiers and airmen in the 12FAC reception outside the Dolphin Bar and Corporal’s Club in the Mount Pleasant Complex.

Following the seven-day, three-handed Court Martial, the Board returned Not Guilty verdicts against James and Anthony’s clients. The proceedings attracted a great deal of national press attention as well as social media debate.

The case also involved a successful submission of ‘No Case to Answer’ relating to a separate charge alleged against the HCMR soldier James represented.

James and Anthony were both instructed by Jonathan Lynch of Lynch Law.

Members of Lamb Building’s established Military Law Team accept instructions to both defend and prosecute in Court Martial proceedings in the UK and abroad.
