Sandy Woodward was a Falklands hero and a national hero – Rt Hon Jim Murphy MP

Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on the death of Admiral Sir John ‘Sandy’ Woodward, said:

“This is incredibly sad news. Sandy Woodward was a Falklands hero and a national hero.

“His courage will never be forgotten or without our deep gratitude. His leadership is an inspiration to many inside and beyond the Royal Navy.

“This is also a time for us all to reflect on the immense bravery and sacrifice of all those who serve.”

ENDS
