RAF – The Falkland Islands Campaign
The Falklands Conflict (2 April to 14 June 1982), was a unique period in the history of Britain and Argentina. Although war was never formally declared, the brief conflict saw nearly 1,000 lives lost and many more wounded. Described in such diverse terms as an ‘outdated neo-colonial adventure’, a ‘fight for freedom and democracy’ and a ‘moment of national greatness’, in some ways the conflict belonged more to the 19th than the 20th century.
