The British effort to regain the Falkland Islands long has been regarded here as the stuff of military legend--an air, sea and land triumph against a greater Argentine force. But a darker side of the campaign has emerged, involving charges of war crimes that could lead to civilian prosecution of combat paratroopers. An 18-month investigation--by Scotland Yard detectives--is scheduled to be submitted to the director of public prosecutions early in the new year.

Heavy winds and high seas off Argentina's rugged South Atlantic coast forced explorers Friday to suspend the search for an Argentine warship sunk by Britain in the 1982 Falkland Islands war. The expedition, led by the National Geographic Society, struggled for 12 days to locate the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano, whose recovery was to be the centerpiece of a planned two-hour documentary.

Over British objections, the United States is selling Argentina 36 A-4 Skyhawks with advanced radar to replace some of the jet attack planes lost by the Argentines in their 1982 war against Britain over the Falkland Islands. Argentina will get the used American planes cheap--$200,000 to $300,000 each, according to one source--but it will spend hundreds of millions of dollars to have them refurbished and refitted.

An Argentine civil court upheld a 12-year sentence for former President Leopoldo F. Galtieri on charges of negligence and incompetence stemming from Argentina's defeat in the 1982 Falklands War. The Federal Appeals Court in Buenos Aires also revised sentences handed down by a military tribunal in 1984 for two other members of the military junta that plunged Argentina into the war with Britain. Gen. Basilio Lami Dozo, former air force chief, had his sentence increased from eight to 12 years.

Argentina and Britain announced an agreement Thursday to restore full diplomatic ties, nearly eight years after they fought a 74-day war over the Falkland Islands, a sparsely populated archipelago off Argentina's coast in the South Atlantic Ocean. The announcement capped two days of talks here between Argentine and British officials. Britain agreed to lift by March 31 a 150-mile military protection zone enforced around the islands since Argentina invaded them in 1982.

Preparing for the first visit to Britain by an Argentine leader since the 1982 Falklands War, President Carlos Menem said Friday that he "deeply regretted" the bloody Anglo-Argentine conflict and hoped to further relations between the two countries next week. But his regrets, conveyed in the Sun tabloid Friday morning, served to open old wounds rather than heal them.
