£1.5m Falklands War Museum Plan

HISTORIANS plan to build a £l.5 million new museum in the Falklands so the story of 1982 can be properly told in time for the conflict 40th anniversary.

The team behind the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust have already raised one third of their total as they strive to erect a new gallery and exhibition hall in Stanley.

That collection has been considerably bolstered by the Type 21 Club and veterans of HMS Avenger in particular. Seven 21s were involved in the Falklands task force, two were sunk (Ardent and Antelope), two more were damaged.
