The British submarine HMS Conqueror that sink the Belgrano in new Falklands exhibition

The British submarine that sank the Argentine battle cruiser General Belgrano is to feature at the centre of a new Falklands Memorial Fleet to commemorate Britain’s heroic role in recapturing the invaded islands

However HMS Conqueror, which is currently moored in Plymouth, will be at its heart and become Britain’s first post-war submarine available for public visits.

The National Maritime Trust is currently bidding to acquire the Type-42 destroyer HMS Edinburgh, sister ship to HMS Sheffield and HMS Coventry which were both lost in the conflict, with a view to establishing it as a museum in Falmouth docks, Cornwall

Future plans aim to see HMS Bristol, the last Royal Naval vessel still in service which took place in the Falklands War, added to the memorial fleet, as well permanent loan of the aircraft carrier HMS Hermes, which is currently in service with the Indian Navy.

I wouldn't say the newspaper makes you feel proud. However, the fact that we went and liberated Sovereign Islands and the British citizens living there does actually make me feel rather proud, yes.

funny comment in the thread of that article...

"This display navy may be larger and more effective than the current navy-if the cut continue"

Sad, but true..

I hope Britain doesn't have to defend the Falkand Islands again any time soon. I fear we either wouldn't have the resources to do it or wouldn't even bother to try. Sad

I doubt we would have the American's support, so we wouldnt even bother trying or even be preventing from trying by them politically.

Which is ironic, bearing in mind how much this country has bent over backwards for them in the past.

Europe wouldnt be any help anyways, they a) hate us and b) isnt any money in it for them
