Falklands 40: In their own words

Falklands 40: In their own words

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) and gallery display.

Within the Steam, Steel and Submarines gallery is a new display focussing on the personal stories of those who experienced the conflict either on active service, or back home in Dockyard.

This display documents Chatham’s role in the conflict, including the Chatham-based vessels HMS Endurance, HMS Plymouth, HMS Courageous, HMS Conqueror, HMS Valiant, HMS Herald, and HMS Hydra.

As part of this new exhibit, the Trust is 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.
