Fellow Falklands collectors??


Recommended Posts

I agree Paul, it was a landmark in history and yet seems under appreciated in collecting terms. Anything in particular you'd like to see? I can try to fathom out the whole uploading images thing :-) regards. Andrew


Well all of it... pending that mammoth task the iconic pieces

Hi Andrew,


I'm a fellow Falklands collector, all started aged 12 watching the Sea Harriers departing from Yeovilton to join the carriers, and then followed a few months later by friends dad's returning with war trophies.


I agree with you, a conflict that was significant in the 20th century, and the last of its type (probably) with evenly equipped forces opposing one another in set piece battles, archive records show that it also caused a reappraisal by the Soviet Union of how NATO would react - up until 1982 they didn't think we would fight back!


Good luck collecting.
