The first time I heard of the Falkland Islands was when I was at home two weeks into a six week annual leave programme; whilst sat watching TV there was a news flash announcing that Argentina had invaded the Islands. I contacted P & O with whom I was employed at the time and was instructed to go to Southampton to re-join Canberra.
The first time I saw the Falklands was in the dead of night on the 21st May as we passed Fanning Head making our way into San Carlos Bay. The rest as they say is History.
Now all these years later I believe it is important that we engage with the younger generation to ensure that this important event is not forgotten.
