National Museum of the Royal Navy launches
Falklands Conflict day by day account
To commemorate the 30[SUP]th[/SUP] anniversary of the Falklands Conflict, the Museums of the National Museum of the Royal Navy will run a day by day account of the conflict using Facebook and Twitter starting on Thursday 29 March. The Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Royal Marines Museum, National Museum of the Royal Navy (Portsmouth Historic Dockyard) and the Fleet Air Arm Museum have put together a comprehensive time line of the Royal Navy’s campaign during the conflict in 1982.

Bill Sainsbury, Marketing Manager at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum said, “Each one of the Museums of the National Museum of the Royal Navy is engaged in telling the story of the last major naval war of the 20[SUP]th[/SUP] century from our unique perspectives. We hope that by coming together and using Facebook and Twitter on a day by day basis that we can bring this account alive as it happened 30 years ago.”

The Facebook and Twitter timeline will start on Thursday 29 March 2012 to mark the events that led to the invasion of the Falklands on April 2 1982 through to surrender on June 14 1982. The social networking timeline will finish on 25 June. This time line is part of a whole season of commemorative events across the Museums of the National Museum which includes a conference at the National Museum of the Royal Navy (Portsmouth Historic Dockyard) and Fleet Air Arm Museum, a season of talks at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and the Royal Marines Museum and exhibitions at the Submarine Museum and Fleet Air Arm Museum.

The history of the Royal Navy on the sea, under the sea, in the air and on the land is preserved for the benefit of today’s and future generations by The National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) which embraces the museums of the Royal Navy, including NMRN Portsmouth & HMS Victory, The Submarines Museum, the Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Royal Marines Museum.
