This powerful film (also on display at various times in the Media Lab gallery) was produced to mark 40 years since the Falklands War. The film includes archive material from The Box’s collections alongside interviews with ex-service personnel and their families and footage from the Imperial War Museum, RAF Museum and ITV, some of which was shot on location in the Falklands during the conflict.
