In 2012 it will be 30 years since the Falklands conflict took place.  To mark this anniversary the Fleet Air Arm Museum is planning a new exhibition which will not only look again at the events of the spring and summer of 1982 but also tell the stories of those who served in the conflict, the families they left at home and the experience of the Falkland Islanders.

To help present the human side of this military campaign as clearly as possible they need to have those personal stories – the voices of individuals on whom the conflict had the greatest impact.

They are asking if you are interested in:

a) providing one abiding memory you might have of the conflict – this might be to do with the military campaign itself or it might be something not directly connected to military operations but that is indelibly linked in your memory to the period of the conflict;

b) being recorded sot hat your reminiscences are added to our oral history archive but might also be used in the exhibition; and

c) letting them know of any objects or material of interest they might have from that time that you would be willing to loan to the museum for the duration of the exhibition (about 1 year).

If any of you would like to be involved in this exhibition in this way then if you would contact Susan Dearing, in the first instance by email at falklands30@fleetairarm.com, she would be very pleased to hear from you.
