Photos From Korea to the Falkland Islands - colourised images of conflicts after World War II.

Royal Marines from 45 Commando about to yomp 56 miles across East Falklands in the hope of bagging-off two sisters.

Turns out the yomp was for "The Battle of Two Sisters" - a mountain ridge occupied by Argentinian 4th & 6th Infantry Regiments.

Despite the initial confusion, the Royal Marines were victorious.
