On the 5th April 1982, a large British task force set out on a 7500 mile journey to liberate a group of tiny windswept islands in the South Atlantic. On 1st May began the biggest naval action to take place since the Second World War - nearly 900 men lost their lives. 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the conflict.
