It is usually 45 Cdo based in Arbroath that would do Exercise "Springtrain" in Norway but you may have some ML's or SC's that were Portsmouth or Poole based taking part.
If you check The Garden of Remembrance out on SAMA site, http://www.sama82.org.uk/1982/GardenofRemembrance/tabid/78/Default.aspx it lists all those we lost in the Flalklands. Hope this helps.
