One of the Royal Navy's newest and most powerful warships is to set sail for the Falkland Islands a day before the 30th anniversary of the British task force setting sail for war.
HMS Dauntless, the second of the Navy's hi-tech Type 45 air defence destroyers, will leave its home port of Portsmouth Naval Base on Wednesday.
This will evoke memories of the first ships of the task group, including the aircraft carriers HMS Hermes and Invincible, sailing from the Hampshire port on April 5 1982.
Argentina has complained to the UN of the UK's "militarisation" of the South Atlantic following the announcement of the deployment of Dauntless.
The MoD has said that it is a routine mission with Dauntless taking over the patrols of Plymouth-based frigate HMS Montrose.
The Falkland Islands occupy an odd place in the world and in history. The anniversary of the war that was fought over them is no different.
Services are held in Britain and Argentina to remember the fallen from the 74-day conflict of 1982.
