Seems like the crew were pretty confident of rescue though. Probably not so hard to distract yourself with a little humour when you're not expecting imminent doom.
On second thought, let's not go to the Falklands. It is a silly place.
Also the origin of the ditty - 'If your ship is cold and wet, heat it up with Exocet!'
This sinking/attack was literally required reading during my training in the Navy, basically: "Never do this, ever."
This makes more proud to be British than anything else.

See how the crew had the right attitude and great morale, but at the time the UK government "discouraged" airplay of *Six Months in a Leaky Boat*, even though the song's relationship with the Falklands War was purely coincidental. Governments seem to have a knack for being out of touch with their own people.
