SOUTH TO THE FALKLANDS!
In April 1982, Britain was astonished to find itself at war with Argentina over a group of windswept, sparsely populated islands thousands of miles away from the British mainland.
On 2 April 1982, an Argentinian military force landed on this little group of islands and unilaterally declared Britain’s rule to be over.
This was the first invasion of a British territory since WW2 and the result would be a short but bloody conflict that decided the political fate of both countries and their leaders.
As we approach 2022 King & Country is proud to remember and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of a remarkable military victory against great odds by the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces that won the day and proved, yet again, when ‘The going gets tough... The tough get going!’
