SoFFAAM Presents: The Falklands at 40: 2nd April 2022

SoFFAAM Presents: The Falklands at 40

Event

On 2nd April 1982, the Argentine invasion of the Falkland Islands began. 40 years on, the Fleet Air Arm Museum and it’s Society of Friends (SoFFAAM) invites you to a day of lectures, retrospectively looking at the events of the Falklands Conflict through the eyes of those who took part.

This commemorative event will include lectures from guest speakers, a panel Q&A session, and an opportunity to visit the museum during lunch refreshments to view the Falklands aircraft on display.

Speakers for the event will include:

Lt. General Sir Michael Rose- SAS Commander.

Captain Michael Clapp- Commodore Amphibious Warfare.

Commodore Neill Thomas- CO 899 NAS, Sea Harrier Pilot.

Harry Benson- The youngest ‘Junglie’ pilot of the Falklands campaign.

Unfortunately, Cdre. Michael Clapp has had to withdraw from presenting at the conference. He is replaced by Captain John Kelly RN, who was Executive Officer of HMS Fearless during the Falklands War. Captain Kelly will speak about the ship’s close involvement “down south”.

For more information about the activity of the Society of Friends of Fleet Air Arm Museum, including ticketed online streaming of this event, visit the SoFFAAM website.
