Transcript from ‘Falklands War Red & Green Life Machine’ podcast

Paul – Then I stood on the beach and watched Antelope blow up, then eventually sink. For me, that’s the reality of war. I talk to students these days in colleges and universities and I say, do you know there are not many people alive that have watched a warship sink? On the 25th of May, I stood on the beach with a lot of ships company from Antelope as well. You just watched their whole house, their belongings and everything just sink to the bottom of the sea.

It was spectacular and I mean that as descriptive. To watch the photographs, you see of those explosions going off midships of Antelope, was just unbelievable. What was unbelievable, was the heat and the noise of that burning melting metal going into the freezing South Atlantic. You just can’t describe it, you really can’t describe it. For me it’s like a silhouette. It’s all dark and then right in the middle is the ship with all the the explosion going on.

Simon Weston CBE Falklands War

Simon Weston CBE is a veteran of the British Army who is known for his charity work and recovery from severe burn injuries suffered during the Falklands War. On 8 June 1982 he was boarded with other members of his regiment on RFA Sir Galahad in Port Pleasant near Fitzroy, just off the Falkland Islands. The ship was hit and set on fire by the Argentine Skyhawk fighters during the Bluff Cove Air Attacks. His ship was carrying a huge amount of ordinance and thousands of gallons of diesel and petrol. Out of his platoon of 30 men, 22 lost their lives. The Welsh Guards lost a total of 48 men and 97 wounded aboard the Sir Galahad. Simon survived with 46% burns, in which his face was barely recognisable.

Chris and Simon

C – Simon, how are you brother?

S – I’m ok, a bit stressed with some home improvements we’re having done. Other than that I’m tickety boo. I’ve got a lot of new projects waiting to start, but this damn virus is making everything so slow. It is what it is.

C – Do you have enough time for your family with all your commitments, because you are a very busy man.

S – Well it certainly was before the Covid thing. The thing is when I’m not working I’m spending time with my family and perhaps because people see me do a lot of work they think that’s all I do.
