The aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious was moored between my home and Greenwich this week, a visit that marked the 25th anniversary of the Falklands conflict. It seemed such a silly little war at the time, but by today's standards appears quite well-considered. Illustrious wasn't in the South Atlantic in '82, but the Invincible was mothballed until 2010 after its visit to the same spot on the Thames in 2005.
