Imperial War Museum opens The Falklands.1982

Imperial War Museum (IWM) North in Manchester, presents The Falklands.1982, an exhibition on view 24 March 2012 to 31 July 2014.

Marking the thirtieth anniversary of the Falklands War, this new outdoor photographic display takes a unique look at the heroes, casualties, dangers and challenges of the conflict.

It contains six powerful photographs depicting the war on land, in the air and at sea, in huge, 5-metre-high frames – all taken from the extensive IWM photographic archive.

The display includes a dramatic scene of a British casualty being rushed to the sick bay on board HMS Hermes, shown alongside the famous image of the Royal Marines march across the Falklands towards Port Stanley, by Ron Hudson.

On selected dates throughout April, the museum is running special tours around the Main Exhibition Space, taking a closer look at stories from the Falklands War. – www.iwm.org.uk
