40th anniversary - project opportunities

The 40th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Falkland Islands will be a significant occasion for many people, both in the Falkland Islands and overseas. As such, the Falkland Islands Government (FIG) regularly receives details of projects taking place outside of the Islands and which are not being coordinated via the 40th Anniversary Committee.

To help spread awareness of these opportunities, we have set up this webpage, and contributions are welcome from anyone who is looking to run a event or activity that has links with the 40th anniversary.

If you would like to submit an entry for this page, please email a brief description of your project and your contact information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - please note, that submissions will be included at the discretion of FIG which means that only suitable entries will be published, and these may be subject to proofing and editing prior to publication.

 

Project Contact information

To mark the 40th anniversary, the British Modern Military History Society is compiling a book of memories and stories of those who served in the Falklands. The stories can be of any role, any of the services, civilians, Falkland Islanders, those based in UK or the families of those who served. We would also be interested in any stories from the Argentine perspective. All profits will go to the charity Blind Veterans UK.

If you have a story to tell – whether a short anecdote or a longer piece - please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

To mark the 40th anniversary, Mr Andrew Cave has initiated a project to commemorate the efforts of dockyard workers and the contribution that they made to the Falkland Islands war. A plaque has already been unveiled in Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, and further plans are now underway for Devonport Naval Dockyard, Chatham Historic Dockyard, Gibraltar Dockyard, Portland Dockyard, Rosyth Dockyard, Faslane Dockyard, Southampton and Hull. Mr Cave is now seeking support for further commemorative plaques, in particular those which acknowledge the psychological and physical impact on veterans.
