British forces in Iraq and Afghanistan should draw inspiration from victory in the Falklands, Baroness Thatcher said today in a rare public message.

Lady Thatcher drew a parallel between the Falklands and current conflicts in a brief radio message to mark the 25th anniversary of the 10-day war with Argentina that sealed her dominance of British politics.


Falklands War
- Date 2 April 1982 – 14 June 1982

777 wounded

Iraq War-
