The Falklands War: Preserving Soldiers’ Stories

Discover how museums around the country have preserved incredible personal stories from the Falklands War over the last 40 years.

In 1982, the British Army took part in a 10-week campaign to retake the Falkland Islands, a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic, following their surprise capture by the Argentine military.

Fought 8,000 miles from home, in often challenging conditions, the war had a profound impact on all those involved.

This short documentary film will take you behind the scenes at military museums and Army bases to see how the stories of soldiers who served in the conflict have been preserved. 

View fascinating items and hear first-hand testimonies sourced from the collections of the National Army Museum, Airborne Assault Museum, REME Museum and the Guards Museum. 

The film will premiere on this page at 12.00pm on 30 June 2022.
