Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the Argentine invaders surrendering to British forces on the 14 June, 1982. The day is celebrated in the Falklands as ‘Liberation Day’.

The Falklands were freed after an unprovoked Argentine invasion – as Argentinian commander General Mario Menendez surrendered to British forces at Stanley – marking the end of the war in the South Atlantic.

The British overseas territory of the Falklands are made up of over 700 islands with the two largest, West and East Falkland home to around 3,000+ people.

Plymouth pays tribute to the people of the Falklands, military veterans, and the UK armed forces – and raising the flag for the anniversary of the liberation of the islands from Argentina.
