Improved Falklands Exhibit

On 1 May 1982 British forces struck back at the Argentinean garrison that had invaded the Falkland Islands a month before. On this day, as the Task Force entered the total exclusion zone, an RAF Vulcan dropped 1,000lb bombs on Port Stanley’s runway and Sea Harriers from HMS Hermes dropped cluster bombs on other parts of the airfield.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the War in the South Atlantic, the Museum has improved its Falklands exhibit with new models representing elements of the Task Force and the aircraft, both British and Argentinean that took part in the conflict.

Also displayed, is an explanation as to why there is a link between this 25th anniversary and the Museum’s opening in 1982. The link is No 1 (F) Squadron which flew its Harrier GR3 ground attack aircraft in this conflict. This squadron has always considered Tangmere to be its ancestral home.
