25th Anniversary of the Falklands Conflict

Filed under: Uncategorized — John Maass @ 1:59 am

"The 25th Anniversary of the Falklands Conflict will be marked by special commemorative events in June next year, Secretary of State for Defence John Reid announced" recently.  More details are available in Defence News, from which the quote comes.  There will activities in the UK and on the islands too.  The British lost 200 soldiers during the war, the Argentines 655.

Seems to me like it was a lot longer than 25 years ago…
