Falklands 30th anniversary: Sir Galahad ablaze

It is one of the most iconic images of the Falklands war, the ship Sir Galahad ablaze in Bluff Cove.

8 June 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the air attack on the landing ship.

56 men lost their lives, the biggest single loss suffered by the British during the conflict.

The war correspondent Robert Fox was one of only a handful of journalists accompanying the task force, his report looks back at the tragic events of that day.
