The RFA Sir Galahad was sailing to support British troops when she was bombed by Argentine jets in June 1982 and those on board were unprepared for the deadly attack that killed 48 people

The crew of a naval ship bombed by Argentine troops during the Falklands War gathered to watch a porn film just before the deadly attack, a former soldier revealed.

The Falklands War between the United Kingdom and Argentina ended with an Argentine surrender on June 14, 1982, but not before 255 British troops and 649 Argentines lost their lives in the fighting.

To mark the anniversary of the conflict’s final days, a BBC documentary, Our Falklands War: A Frontline Story, shared devastating testimonies from some of the young British soldiers who witnessed the battle firsthand.

And in a shocking scene, crew members aboard the naval ship Sir Galahad revealed they were completely unprepared for a deadly bombing raid.

The naval support ship was transporting troop reinforcements to a regiment in Bluff Cove, an area on the east coast of the Falkland Islands, when it came under attack by Argentine forces.

Chris White, a Royal Navy commando aboard the ship, explained that the crew and their commanding officers did not expect a fight as the plan was to sneak in and out before dawn.

So, as one crew member explained, the soldiers on board were not afraid of an attack and even felt “indestructible” on the day of the attack.

In a shocking revelation, Chris even revealed that the troops’ officers had made up their minds to do so motivate their men just before a brutal attack with an adult film.

“The guys decided we needed a morale boost, so they came out with this brand new invention called Betamax [a video player]and they went on to play a porn movie, which we found very entertaining because it was incredibly lame, but the actor forgot to take his socks off,” Chris recalled.

This story was corroborated by Army medic Michael “Iddy” Iddon, who admitted: “We were watching some porn.

“It was interesting for a short time, but once it started rewinding and playing again, I got bored and hungry because it was getting close to breakfast time.

The screening was well attended, with Michael admitting that as many people as possible packed the room.

But the crew’s fun was soon interrupted by the sound of an enemy bomber in the air.

Taking up the story, Chris continued, “We were watching this porn movie and we were laughing our heads off and this guy is screaming ‘Action Stations’ at the top of his lungs.

“A 1000 pound bomb comes through the ceiling, which went through the brig, our accommodation, down into the engine room and exploded.

“Two rockets went through the wall, crossed the room, took a couple of guys with them, exploded in the galley and killed everyone.”

The attack resulted in heavy British casualties, with the blasts killing 48 crew and soldiers and leaving many with long-lasting symptoms of PTSD.
