Letter: Dunlop daps

Sir: When I visited the Falkland Islands in 1988, I saw the word DAP sprayed in large letters on a number of houses in Stanley. I was told at the time that this was a Spanish acronym used by the Argentine forces in 1982 to mark buildings to be protected from attack.

Following your recent correspondence, I now wonder whether it indicated the presence of a large contingent of Welsh from Patagonia among the invading forces.
