Volunteers required for 40th Anniversary of the 1982 Falklands War

9th March 2021

Alan Ewart is a Royal Navy veteran and a social documentary photographer working on a project to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the 1982 Falklands War.

Alan is looking for volunteers willing to be interviewed about their personal recollections of the war, and to be photographed for a book and exhibition.  Interviews will be used to create a short film about the volunteers experiences.  The work will also explore how the Falkland Islands have developed in the 40-years since the war.

The project has the support of the Falkland Islands government who say that Alan’s work will “make an important contribution to Falklands’ history and will greatly enrich the commemorations and celebrations planned for 2022 for both veterans and Islanders.”

The project is open to anyone who was part of the UK Taskforce, civilian and military, and to Falkland Islanders who experienced the occupation and liberation.  The requirements for volunteers are not onerous.  Alan needs a photograph of volunteers from around the time of the war, and he will visit you to take some photographs and conduct the interview.  All Covid safety measures will be complied with.

To volunteer or for further information, Alan can be contacted by email at alan.ewart@icloud.com or by phone on 07968 226213.
