    In this war, given the tyranny of time, distance and will, there were no underdogs. Only ordinary men who did the extrodinary in an unordinary situations.

    Most Argentine military technology was on a par with that of the UK forces. Some (like their Type 42 destroyers) had actually been purchased from Britain.

    Given that fact that Argentina had been waging a dirty war in its own lands from the early 1970 and it boarder war with Chile I would have to say that they did have the relevant skills to take on a war with the UK they also tried a little skirmish back in 1976 when an Argentina Airliner was hijacked and landed on the island’s a good friend of mine was with the 8901 garrison back then; he commanded the team that disarmed the aircraft and hijackers. As for weapons they had as good as ours maybe better in some cases, not good air cover thanks to some very well planed attacks but the Argentine Pilots were very capable. What let their men down was leadership from above and the fact they under estimated the UK Response. As for the UK Forces we had not been in a major conflict since Suzie and Cyprus back in the late 50 and early 60, you cannot compare Northern Ireland with the Falklands War totally different stagies. I like some on this threat can speak from experience as I was in Northern Ireland on a 2 year tour of duty and down here in 82.

    I agree that the "sheep shed" picture is strangely beautiful and mysterious.

    Default Very good Pictures

    These are most enjoyable pictures. The picture showing the green badge with the black eagle, I have one of these it was taken from a man who was a POW up at Stanley airfield and given to me. I never new who or what regiment he was from, the good news is that he went home, a lot did not.

    Brave men all on both sides.
