It is thirty years since the Falklands War took place. David Morgan was a harrier pilot from this area who not only published a vivid account of the conflict from his own personal experience but also wrote some very moving poetry at the time. These poems were not for ‘general reading’ but were written to record his own feelings at a time of great stress. David very kindly allowed the East Coker Poetry Group to put together an evening of poetry and prose based on these very personal poems. Tony Ellerbeck, a helicopter pilot who took part in the Falklands conflict, gave an excellent short talk to set the scene for the evening.
