Falklands Conflict

“On 2 April 1982, Argentinian forces invaded the Falkland Islands, a British overseas territory located more than 8,000 miles from the UK. Just three days later on 5 April, the first ships of a combined British task force set sail in response. Not all of the ships that sailed south were part of the Royal Navy however. Merchant ships including cargo vessels, tankers and cruise liners were requisitioned to support the operation.” See the website with interviews here.
