Landing Day service commemorates the British Task Force amphibious landings near the settlement of San Carlos on May 21, 1982.
Invading Argentine forces had been occupying the Falklands since April 2. The landing of the British Forces, on May 1, signalled the beginning of recovering the Islands. Over the next few days, the area became known as 'Bomb Alley' as Argentine fighter jets tried to stop the advance.
A service of remembrance is held each year to remember all those who lost their lives during the ensuing battles. This year, the service was led by the Reverand Ian Faulds. An estimated 30 people attended, a smaller number than usual due to the current global health pandemic.
This programme was broadcast on Falklands Radio on May 22, 2020. It will be available for one year.
