2017 marks the 35th anniversary of the Falklands war.

It was a bloody battle that lasted 74 days, killing 255 British soldiers and 649 Argentine soldiers.

Former Paratrooper, Dave Baker, was one of 20 Jerseymen sent to fight in the conflict against Argentina in 1982. But since then, he's never returned.

To mark the anniversary, ITV Channel TV have taken Dave back to the Falklands to retrace his steps, revisit those he liberated and remember friends he lost.

It comes as part of a special three-part series of features that ITV Channel TV are running this week.

More on Dave's story in our programme tonight at 6.
