In 1982, the Falklands War came to an end after 74 days of bloody battles and Argentina surrendering. 255 British servicemen lost their lives and many more were injured, including blind veteran Terry. Terry was on board the HMS Antrim and, while attempting to fight a fire onboard, lost his sight when he was targeted by an airstrike.
Terry is one of many who recounted their experiences in Glimpses of War – a collection of wartime stories in aid of Blind Veterans UK. Find out more or download a free chapter about the Falklands War.
