On the night of 6/7 June, 601 Commando's 2nd Assault Section attacked the British patrol base near Murrell Bridge, northwest of Stanley, from UK's D Company of the 3rd Battalion of the Parachute Regiment. After a 40 minute gun-battle the British abandoned the outpost under heavy mortar fire, leaving behind much of their equipment. The outcome of this engagement compelled the British to set patrol bases closer to their own lines.
