        The reason for the suggestion to save one of the Royal's Invincible Class Aircraft Carrier, as a Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, Gurkha's and RAF, Falklands War and Harrier v/stol fighter Floating Museum. Either HMS Ark Royal, or HMS Illustrious, or especially HMS Invincible herself as she was in the Falklands War, all are being decommissioned and sold of to other Navies if any buyers can be found, more likely to be broken up and destroyed.
        There is not really a Falklands War Museum in the UK, neither is their a ex-Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier floating Museum in the UK, though their are aircraft carrier floating museums else where in the world, which draw high number of visitor's and raise income for the cities they are moored/located in too.
        Though one of these great Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier, should be saved for the nations sake, also to remember those who went to the Falklands, to fight for the freedom of the people of the Falklands, especially those killed and/or left disabled and chronically ill, also the military families of these, all of which are still paying a high price today for fighting the Falklands war.
        Though the United Kingdom should remember and honour the great British v/stol fighter, The Harrier in all it's version's, which has served the RAF and FAA in peace time and wars, United Nation's operation's around the world as well as in the Falklands war and maybe actually was a major reason for winning the Falklands War too. As the RAF/FAA Joint Harrier Force, has also been decommissioned, again sold to others, or again more likely broken up and destroyed too.
        The Harrier fighter aircraft, was the worlds first true Vertical / Short Take-Off and Landing Fighter aircraft, not only the RAF and FAA operated, but the US.Marine Corp and other Nato Countries, also Allied NAtion's around the world and still do, so a museum to the Harrier is especially needed, as the Harrier is alsospecially kinked to all of the above Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier's, it would only be fitting for a Floating museum on a aircraft carrier to the Harrier v/stol fighter, that why we ar asking for support for this campaign from the British Armed Forces community and the British general public too.
