The Plaques

 

After the Argentinian surrender, Admiral Sandy Woodward sent a final signal to the task force which he had commanded with such distinction.
“As I haul my Southern Atlantic flag down, I reflect sadly, on the brave lives lost, and good ships gone, in the short time of our trial. I think wholeheartedly each and everyone of you for your gallant support, tough determination and fierce perseverance under bloody conditions. Let us all, as we return severally to the blessings of our land, resolve that those behind forever shall not be forgotten”
