The Falklands.

After the April 3rd invasion by Argentina, and the subsequent passing of UN Resolution 502 calling for the withdrawal of Argentine troops froms the Falklands, on April 23rd the British Foreign Office advised British nationals living in Argentina to leave. Two days later British commandos re-took the Georgia Island, and the main British task force set off from Ascension Island.
