Private Eye Cartoon Falklands War Memorial

I also found this cartoon from the 1980s satirising Thatcher and the Falkland’s War in the ‘History of Private Eye Cartoons: Part 3′, in Private Eye for the 5th to 18th October 2001. The caption on the war memorial reads ‘They Died To Save Her Face’, and the cartoon is simply titled ‘New War Memorial’.

That’s basically what it was. Maggie cut back on the British fleet defending the islands. She set the naval ship away, and the Argentinians took their chance. And 200 + British squaddies lost their lives.
