Overview

The outbreak of the Falklands War found the Antarctic patrol vessel HMS Endurance alone, lightly armed, and stuck with a highly visible red and white peacetime paint scheme.

Tense days followed as Endurance dodged from island to island, evading Argentine patrols and waiting for the arrival of British reinforcements.

Endurance eventually aided in numerous operations against the Argentine forces, and a major Argentine surrender eventually took place aboard the vessel.
