Her Majesty's Ship Dauntless is due to set sail from Portsmouth today for a six-month deployment in the South Atlantic whilst tension between Buenos Aires and London increases. A few days ago services in both countries were held to mark the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War. A conflict which resulted in the loss of 258 Britons and 649 Argentines dead.
