One of the most striking images of the war is that of survivors from Sir Tristram landing at Fitzroy. It’s a quiet scene, expressing despondency and shock rather than panic or terror. In the foreground, a couple of soldiers wade ashore, mooring the landing craft. Behind them, smoke belches from the ship, which has been bombed by Skyhawks. The land behind is flat, barren, with no trace of human inhabitation. Almost as many lives were lost in the war as there were people living on the island. Around fifty were killed on the burning wrecks of Sir Tristram and Sir Galahad, most were Welsh Guards.
