Baroness Thatcher unveiled a memorial to the Falklands conflict last Saturday in the Hampshire town of Fareham. The unveiling of an ironwork arch was part of a commemorative event to mark the 25th anniversary of the conflict. This included Falklands veterans as well as local dignitaries and serving members of the forces.
With the 25th anniversary of the conflict this year, it’s likely there will be other new memorials unveiled. We currently have 308 memorials to the Falklands on our database. Many of these are memorial plaques to individuals, but they also include names that have been added to existing First and Second World War memorials, such as this one at Landrake in Cornwall.
