Falklands veterans gather to mark 40 years since task force set sail

Thousands of British personnel were part of the task force sent to re-take the Falklands Islands in 1982 after Argentina invaded.

Although known as the Falklands War, it was actually an undeclared war because neither side declared war on the other.
