With the coming 30th Anniversary there will be lots of stuff on the Internet and mainstream media but one really great resource is the Twitter Hash Tag Falklands30
This from BFBS
Starting today (Thursday) the collective museums of the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth, Hampshire, are running the day-by-day account of how the war unfolded in 1982.
Experts from the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport, the Royal Marines Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum are also contributing to the timeline.
Bill Sainsbury, marketing manager at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, said: “Each one of the museums of the National Museum of the Royal Navy is engaged in telling the story of the last major naval war of the 20th century from our unique perspectives.
“We hope that by coming together and using Facebook and Twitter on a day-by-day basis that we can bring this account alive as it happened 30 years ago.”
The Facebook and Twitter timeline describes the build-up to the Argentinian invasion of the Falklands on April 2 1982 through to the surrender on June 14 1982, with the timeline concluding on June 25.
It starts on this day 30 years ago as Argentina cancels all leave for military and diplomatic personnel and five Argentine warships are sighted near South Georgia in March 1982.

If ever there was a reason to get a Twitter account it is this, it has been riveting so far and very well written, within the confines of 140 characters of course.
Can we use the comments in this thread as a running record for all the stuff that will be out there in the coming months, news, forum posts, blogs, videos, lets have it all in one place?
