That year is when I joined the reserve's 

I joined (regulars) in Sep 81 and remember while still in training coming in one night to see this all over the news

A few days after the invasion, we were all marched down to the stores to hand in "essential war winning equipment" - a pair of shoes, flasher mack and jap hat...! go figure?? 

There is great audio book narrated by Max Hastings and (I think) Simon Jenkins, great to listen to on long journeys..
