Our Photo Of The Day goes back in time, to The Falklands Conflict in 1982. I wonder how many of our readers were even born then, some 40 years ago? The Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom went on for ten weeks until Argentina surrendered. In total 907 people lost their lives.
The caption for the picture above reads: “A British sentry wearing full camouflage defends the landing site at San Carlos with a 7.62mm General Purpose Machine Gun. A landing craft from HMS FEARLESS is in the background.” (Copyright: © IWM. Original Source: http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205189464)
