April 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the outbreak of the Falklands War, a 74-day conflict fought over the Falkland Islands. Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is commemorating this anniversary through a new photographic exhibition (Everything Changed), gallery display and digital exhibition (In their own words).
Photographer and journalist Graham Bound showcases his collection of 40 photos taken in occupied Port Stanley throughout the conflict. This exhibition captures a unique photographic journey though the eyes of a journalist. The title of this exhibition is in reference to Graham’s belief that no-one who was in the Falklands then, whether civilian or combatant, British or Argentine, was unchanged by the conflict.

As part of the Falklands 40 commemorations, we are appealing to anyone who served in the Falklands Conflict, or worked at the dockyard during the time, to come forward with stories. ‘In their own words’ will become a digital exhibition featuring voice recordings from those who remember significant occasions at the dockyard during the conflict.
