Plymouth’s armed forces veterans raised the flag on the city’s Belvedere today to mark the 41st anniversary of ‘Liberation Day’ in the Falkland Islands. A short ceremony was held with civic dignitaries & military representatives.
On April 2 1982, Argentine forces invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands. Three days later, a UK task force set sail to recapture the Islands and restore freedom for the Islanders.
The ceremony at the Belvedere Flagpole was captured live on our Westward Shipping News 24 hour webcam.
