Brian Hanrahan, a veteran BBC reporter who was responsible for one of British war reporting’s most celebrated moments, aboard an aircraft carrier off the Falklands in 1982, died here on Monday. He was 61.

Mr. Hanrahan’s moment came with his choice of words in reporting on the Fleet Air Arm’s first attack on Argentine positions at Port Stanley, the Falklands capital. Censors had forbade him to mention the number of Harrier jumpjets involved in the mission.

“I’m not allowed to say how many planes joined the raid,” he said in a television report that showed the aircraft returning to the carrier, “but I counted them all out, and I counted them all back.”
