A SUBMARINER will give a talk about his time serving in the Falklands conflict, as the 30th anniversary is marked.

Commander Jeff Tall OBE will be giving a personal perspective on the conflict in an evening talk at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, in Gosport.

From his unique personal standpoint, serving under Admiral Sandy Woodward onboard HMS Hermes, Cdr Tall will speak about the decisions that were taken to ensure victory.

Cdr Tall, said: ‘The Falklands war was a close run thing.

‘With no early warning aircraft, improvisation and extreme courage were the order of the day.’

The talk is part of a season of Third Thursday talks to raise money for the Saving HMS Alliance campaign.

The talk will take place on Thursday, June 21 at 7pm.

Tickets are £8 each and are available by visiting or by calling (023) 92510 354 ext 240.

The Falklands 30 exhibition will run at the museum until November.
