The 4th Airborne Brigade's landing had been relatively successful. While there had been some difficulties on some of the landing zones, the majority of troops had landed safely and formed into their units during the night. The morning of June 3 found the Argentines pushing out from their landing zones. The advance to the southeast had the ridges surrounding San Carlos Water as the main objective. Once the Rapier batteries were destroyed and the Argentines could call down artillery and air strikes on the ships below, it was hoped that the British troops would withdraw.

The advance was led by the Air Forces Commandos as well as troops from 603 Commando Company. Following slightly behind was A Company of the 2nd Airborne. Spirits were high.

While the British High Command in London was demanding more information, Brigadier Thompson realized the seriousness of the Argentine counterattack and promptly moved troops to stop the advance. First off was A Company of the 40th Marines supported by a few special forces troops. They hoped to meet the Argentines well short of their objective and at least slow them down long enough to allow troops from Fifth Infantry Brigade to redeploy to the north. There had been no time to redeploy artillery to support the Marines, but it was hoped that the frigates defending the beachhead would be able to fire in support at maximum range. The two companies appeared to be bound for a head-on collision.
