The Falklands War revisited
Yes No Report this. The former was lost and the latter badly damaged. Ten RFA personnel were killed during the war. Ship-by-ship account of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary's contribution to the war from their newsletter, Force 4. Details of some of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary's bravery awards from their newsletter, Force 4.
An account of the Harrison Line's involvement with the Falkland Islands, both before and during the war. One Harrison Line vessel was later used to resupply the task force, although she did not arrive in time to serve in the war itself. The SS Atlantic Conveyor was the only merchant ship sunk in the war. A roll-on, roll-off container ship owned by Cunard and registered in Liverpool, she was requisitioned by the government and sailed to the South Atlantic as part of the task force carrying RAF and Royal Navy Harriers and helicopters, as well as a considerable quantity of military stores.
On 25 May she was hit by two Exocet missiles and set on fire; she sank three days later, the first British merchant ship lost to enemy action since the Second World War. The six men circled died in the attack, along with three Royal Navy personnel and three Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel. Much of the opposition was based on genuine anti-war beliefs and condemned both Argentina for its aggression and Britain for responding with military force of its own.
Some left-wing groups, however, supported Argentina's claim to 'Las Malvinas' and opposed the war on the basis that Britain was an old colonial power which should just give in gracefully and allow Argentina to take back what it claimed to be its territory. The Trotskyist Revolutionary Communist Party made no bones about where it stood in the debate!
It wholeheartedly backed Argentina's claim to the Falkland Islands. This pamphlet lays out its reasons for doing so and attempts to claim that the military regime in Argentina was simply a reaction to outside 'imperialism' and its atrocities nothing compared to those inflicted by the 'British ruling class' in its efforts to 'turn half the world into a vast concentration camp'.
It argues that Argentinian victory in the Falklands would be the best result for the 'class struggle' in Argentina. CND opposed the war for pacifist reasons and were particularly worried about reports that the task force was carrying tactical nuclear weapons.

On 2 May the British nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror controversially torpedoed and sank the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano with the loss of lives, the only time in history that a nuclear submarine has ever fired her torpedoes in anger. Much of the opposition to the war focused on this incident, which occurred outside the official 'exclusion zone', although it was claimed by British government and military authorities that the vessel was a threat to the task force and that the sinking was wholly legitimate.
The Falkland Islands are an archipelago of islands in the South Atlantic over nautical miles east of Argentina. Discovered in the 16th century, they were first settled in and have been claimed and occupied at various times over the ensuing centuries by France, Britain, Spain and Argentina.
They have been permanently occupied by the United Kingdom since , but have been claimed by Argentina since her independence from Spain in This publication generally opposed the war, but does give a good chronology of the islands' history. Another example of the islands' newsletter giving the results of a sports meeting in the capital, Stanley, which appears to have combined equestrian events with events commonly seen at a school sports day.
