The Falklands War was a 10 week undeclared war between Argentina and the United Kingdom in 1982 over two British dependent territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands and it's territorial dependency, South Georgie and the South Sandwich Islands.

More than 1,000 lives, including those of more than 250 British soldiers were lost in the war.  Arbroath based 45 Commando and the 2nd Battalion of the Scots Guards were heavily involved in the war, losing 15 service personnel.

Across the UK events will take place between April and June 2022 to mark the 40th Anniversary of the Falklands.

Legion Scotland are currently gathering information on all proposed or planned events in Scotland for 2022 to mark the Falklands 40th Anniversary.  This will allow us to create an overview of activities between April to June which can be used as a directory for those who want to attend events in their local area. This is also an opportunity to bring key stakeholders together for the delivery of a national event if there was sufficient interest and support.

If you have information to share or wish to be involved the planning of a national event to commemorate the anniversary, please contact us on [email protected]
