The British Go To War! (1982)

1982 Dry Bones cartoon - The British sail off to war with Argentina.
Today's Golden Oldie was published Twenty Five years ago, today. April 5, 1982..

On April 2 Argentina had invaded the Falkland Islands. Britain then sent a naval task force, and I did this cartoon. Eventually the British ships arrived and 645 Argentine and 255 British troops died in the war that followed. On June 14Th 1982, Argentina surrendered.

Here's a timeline of the war.
