  • We were here on the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War. Princess Anne visited by pure luck when we were in town. We had a beautiful day and ceremony was very nice.

  • The 1982 Liberation Memorial is a war memorial in Stanley, Falkland Islands. It commemorates all British Forces and supporting units that served in the Falklands War and helped liberate the Falkland Islanders from Argentine military occupation in 1982. The Memorial is situated in front of the Secretariat Building, overlooking Stanley Harbour. The funds for the Memorial were raised entirely by Falkland Islanders and it was unveiled by the Governor of the Falkland Islands, Sir Rex Hunt, on Liberation Day (14 June) 1984, the second anniversary of the end of the war.
  • One of the highlights of my trip back down south to pay tribute to those still on patrol far from home. A beautifully designed and maintained memorial for all those who lost their lives in the return of the islands to the people of the Falklands
