TF004 “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina” British Para & Captive
During the Falklands War this famous song from the popular musical ‘Evita’ was often played by British regimental bands with a strong flavor of sarcasm! The British troops themselves changed the original lyrics to…
“You don’t frighten me Argentina
The truth is we will defeat you
We’ll sink your carrier with our Sea Harrier
And sink you and your submarines too!”
This second paratrooper hums the famous tune as he escorts another P.O.W.
This latest ‘Falklands’ release shows soldiers of both nations (Paras and Argentineans) in the immediate aftermath of the surrender as the British ‘Toms’ disarm and escort their prisoners towards a secure holding area.
