BRIGHT SUNNY DAY FOR 32ND ANNIVERSARY OF OUR LIBERATION

By J. Brock (FINN)

The 32nd anniversary of Liberation from Argentine occupation was marked with a dignified series of ceremonies on Saturday, 14 June 2014.

A Thanksgiving Service led by Dr the Reverend Richard Hines took place in Christ Church Cathedral at 0945hrs with H. E. the Governor Mr Colin Roberts, Members of Legislative Assembly and the Commander British Forces in attendance.

The Parade, which formed in the FIC car-park, consisted of the Falkland Islands Defence Force, Royal Navy and a contingent from MPA consisting of Army and Royal Air Force.

At the monument the parade formed up along with members of the Royal British Legion as well as other Veterans’ Associations and Youth Groups.

Prayers were offered by the Armed Forces Chaplain, Cathedral Minister, Roman Catholic Monsignor and the leader of the Tabernacle congregation with wreaths being laid by H. E. the Governor Mr Colin Roberts, Legislative Assembly, commander British Forces, Veterans’ Associations and relatives of those who gave their lives in 1982.

There was no Military Band or Fly Past. However, the sunshine did not disappoint. The weather was excellent. HMS Clyde anchored in the harbour but did not sail past the monument during the ceremony.

A public reception was held in the Town Hall after the ceremony where all residents in the Falklands were invited.
