A STEP-by-step reconstruction of the Falklands War is to be broadcast over Twitter and Facebook to mark the 30th anniversary of the conflict with Argentina.

Starting tomorrow, the collective museums of the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth will run the day-by-day account of how the 1982 war unfolded.

Experts from the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport, the Royal Marines Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum will be contributing to the timeline.

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 20th 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.’
