On the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict, a Dundee veteran is making efforts to create positive ties between both sides.
Tony Banks says those affected by the war have more in common as friends rather than enemies.
The entrepreneur has launched a new scheme allowing children of servicemen who fought on both sides to make contact with each other and share their experiences.
The "Previously Unheard/Hasta Ahora Desconocido" initiative pairs up young people from either side of the Atlantic and allows them to engage over live video chat.
The Falklands War lasted just over ten weeks and cost the lives of 649 Argentinian and 255 British soldiers.
Mr Banks was a young paratrooper when he was sent into the conflict. British troops were ordered to strip belongings from their Argentine prisoners and he returned to Scotland with a confiscated regimental trumpet.
In 2010 he travelled to South America to return the instrument to its rightful owner. Both men are now middle-aged and have their own families.
The former paratrooper said: "When we arrived in the Falklands, we had never spoken to an Argentine before, and the kids that the Argentine junta sent to fight had never seen or met a Brit prior to their reaching the islands.
"Technology changes this, and it made sense to me to try to start dialogue and discussion between those young people who are most affected by the legacy of the 1982 conflict - the children of veterans.
"These conversations are not meant to be political or turn into a debate on whether the Falklands should be British, but rather an attempt to bypass the politicians and show that we have more in common and are better friends than enemies."
Services were held in Britain and the UK on Monday to mark the 30th anniversary of the conflict.
