40 years ago, 11th July 1982, I bicycled over the shore at Woolston, Southampton and photographed the Canberra returning from the Falkland Island conflict. Everyone was out to enjoy the spectacle, the weather being very similar to now - hot, sunny and still. Photographically, those witnessing the event are probably more interesting than the subject, and very much a snapshot of the English on a day off. The youngest in these images will now be well in to their middle age. Photography all my copyright.
