War in the Falklands

This talk covers Edward’s action in the 1982 Falklands War, where he served as an anti-aircraft missile operator. It tells of the bitter filthy conditions in which he and his comrades fought and what it was like to come under air attack day after day, with vivid descriptions of British ships being bombed and sinking and men losing their lives to the desperate fight to survive each day. Edward eventually returned home a completely changed man and was never the same again.

This talk focuses on the reality of war, it is not a child-friendly description that sugarcoats the fear and vulgar attitude needed to live and fight.
