Falklands Memorial Way
At Noon on Saturday 14th June 2014 the Falklands Memorial Way will be officially opened by the Lord-Lieutenant of Staffordshire Mr. Ian Dudson CBE.
This “Way” will link up memorials to civilian and military casualties who lost their lives during the war in 1982.
In the centre of the “Way” a memorial orchard will honour the Falkland Islanders who spied on, sabotaged and disrupted the enemy before British Forces landed. It will also honour those Islanders that helped transport troops, ammunition, supplies and vital intelligence to our troops as they battled across the Islands.
The “Way” is located in the Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.
Please contact Mike Colton (ex 22 SAS) on 07929-118598 who is managing the project in the Grove.

This is an open event and everyone is welcome, just let us know if you wish to attend.
