Falklands: Denzil Connick, Lord West and Bob Fox recall conflict

Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands without warning on 2 April 1982.

For the next 10 weeks the Falkland's 1,800-strong community found themselves the focus of the world's attention.

BBC Radio Wales brought together three men who each played key roles in the conflict: L/Cpl Denzil Connick of the 3rd Battalion Parachute Regiment; Admiral Lord Alan West was commander of HMS Ardent and Bob Fox was a BBC task force correspondent.
