Queen™s Baton Tours the Falklands

The Queen™s Baton arrived in the Falklands on 15 February and embarked on a busy schedule that took it to some of the most scenic areas as well as giving many Islanders a chance to take part in the event.  The Falklands were the 29th of the Baton™s 71 Commonwealth destinations and the southernmost point of its journey to the Commonwealth Games.  Photos below show Falklands children (and penguins) posing proudly with the baton; king penguins and chick inspecting the baton; a baton bearer looking out over the stunning Falklands landscape; and the Governor, HE Alan Huckle, welcoming a baton bearer.
