This photograph was enlarged into a 5 metre high frame and displayed outside the IWM North in Manchester (part of Imperial War Museums) for the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War.
 
Hilary Roberts, Head Curator of IWM's Photograph Archive, said: 'The photographers who went to the Falklands had little experience of frontline combat and very little time to prepare. Nevertheless, they took many remarkable pictures, which have received very little acknowledgement until now. This spectacular display, set against the backdrop of IWM North, commemorates the conflict and pays tribute to the photographers' achievements 30 years ago.'
