  • Lovely place and a nice tribute to the lads who lost their lives liberating the islands.
  • This wood is not well publicised even in Stanley, but it is rather special. One tree has been planted for each serviceman killed in the conflict. Underneath each tree is a plaque commemorating the serviceman, often with extra tributes from friends or family. Somehow a tree is more evocative and personal than a gravestone.and it is difficult to stay dry eyed here for long.
