HMS Hermes Leaves For The Falklands War - RAF and Fleet Air Arm deployed a total of ten Harriers and twenty-eight Sea Harriers on HMS Invincible and the older carrier HMS Hermes to the South Atlantic; they flew 1,561 sorties, and ten were lost, mostly to anti-aircraft missiles.  The RAF planes were used for ground attack; the Fleet Air Arm for air defence. Between them, they shot down twenty Argentinean Mirage and Dagger jets.
