BOMB ALLEY: FALKLAND ISLANDS 1982

By David Yates

(Subject: Post World War II - Falklands) This is the story of the Falklands War as experienced by a below-decks seaman on one of the ships despatched to the South Atlantic. HMS Antrim took part in the first encounter with Argentinean forces when South Georgia was retaken from the invaders. She then lead the first incursion into Falklands Sound, and later became part of the main force anti-aircraft defences in the infamous 'Bomb Alley' in San Carlos Water. During one of the many air attacks the ship was struck by a bomb that, through pure chance, did not explode and remained aboard wedged in the aft 'heads'. Other RN vessels were taking extreme punishment from the almost continuous onslaught from low-flying Argentinean jets. HMS Antelope, HMS Coventry and the Atlantic Conveyer were all lost within a short period whilst the army tried to establish a bridgehead. Card cover edition.
