The Churchill class submarine HMS CONQUEROR, assisted by the PAS tug DEERHOUND, moves towards the jetty on returning to her base at Faslane, Scotland from the South Atlantic, on 3 July 1982. During the Falklands Conflict, she became the first nuclear submarine to sink another warship in combat when she torpedoed the Argentine cruiser GENERAL BELGRANO (ex USS PHOENIX) on 2 May 1982.
