VICE-ADMIRAL Sir Tim McClement will give a one-off talk about his time as second-in-command of HMS Conqueror during the Falklands War.

The talk will cover how HMS Conqueror survived damage by ice flows, the sinking of Belgrano, being depth-charged, attacked by torpedo-carrying aircraft and operating inside San Matias Bay in Argentina.

It takes place on Thursday at 7pm at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.

Tickets cost £8 and can be bought online at submarine-museum.co.uk or by calling (023) 92510 354 ext 240.
