7/4/12 "Land of Confusion" - Genisis
Taken in May 1985, I was just 23 years old and coming to the end of my four month tour of duty at RAF Stanley, Falkland Islands. (Click 'Map this')
The Falkland Islands are a beautiful, bleak remnant of the British Empire with disputed 'ownership' and 30 yrs after the conflict the sabre rattling continues. Within a few days of this photo flew back to England and my first impression was how green, overgrown our hedgerows and verges had got (I travelled out from the UK in the February)
My choice of song title for this is as much to do with the lyrics as the accompanying video which features the 'Spitting Image' latex puppets of Thatcher & Regean, well worth a watch!
