Have you ever wanted to know more about the history of land mines in the Falkland Islands?

We all know they were laid in 1982, but how many and what attempts were made to clear them after the conflict?  Patrick Watts, who was in charge of Falklands Islands Broadcasting Station in 1982, explains.

This interview was recorded in November 2020.

Who are the people that clear land mines?

Groups of highly-trained 'deminers' have been travelling between Zimbabwe and the Falkland Islands to clear minefields for over 11 years.

Over 20,000 land mines were laid by Argentine forces in 1982, and in 2020 the Falkland Islands will be landmine free for the first time in 38 years. Due to the global pandemic, most of the men involved have left the Islands before the completion of the project. 

Falklands Radio attended a goodbye reception on June 19 and spoke to those who were departing.

The Welsh Guards on deployment in the Falkland Islands held a memorial service at Fitzroy on November 5, 2019.

On June 8, 1982, heavy casualties were suffered by the British Taskforce. The RFA Sir Galahad and RFA Sir Tristram were bombed by Argentine forces. In total 48 men were lost from Sir Galahad, two from Sir Tristram and six men from a landing craft of HMS Fearless. The Welsh Guards, near the end of their deployment in the Falklands, held a service to pay their respects to the fallen. They were joined by the Military Wives Choir and members of the community on a windy day at the Fitzroy Memorials.
