New Falklands 40 displays at IWM North will focus on the stories of those who served with British forces during the conflict, including objects relating to Bolton resident Corporal Neil Maher, who served as a signals specialist with No. 656 Squadron, Army Air Corps. Maher set up ship-to-shore communications for crewmen of the damaged RFA Sir Tristram after the ship was bombed at Fitzroy on 8 June.

Images by photographer Paul RG Haley, who covered the conflict for Soldier Magazine, will also be projected in the galleries at IWM North, as part of a series of large-scale, newly digitised photos and film, telling a visual story of the Falklands Conflict.
