New exhibits will include items from IWM’s rich collection that will go on display for the very first time and highlight eyewitness accounts of the conflict.

Images taken by professional photographer Paul RG Haley, who covered the conflict for Soldier Magazine, will be on display. His photographs reflect the varied experiences of British and Argentinian forces on the Islands and capture pivotal moments in the campaign, such as the landings at San Carlos and the advance to Port Stanley. Many of Haley’s photographs have never been displayed before.

In addition, drawings by Linda Kitson, who was the first female artist commissioned by IWM to accompany troops into conflict, will be displayed alongside clothing, equipment and testimony of her time following British forces
