On 14th June, the Chairman of the RAA, Regt Col, RASM and the RAA Secretary joined veterans and their families in the 40th Anniversary to mark the end of Falklands Conflict. The Royal British Legion hosted this special commemorative event at the National Memorial Arboretum, attended by veterans and their families.
'We will honour and thank the service of so many whether it be a dockworker in Britian or Gibraltar, a Merchant Naval seaman, a pilot with the RAF, a sailor or marine with the Royal Navy or an infantryman with the Army. Without all elements of national capabilities coming together, we may not be here today commemorating a conflict that changed Britain.'
Lt Gen James Bashall CB CBE
We remember the service and sacrifice of all those who served, both military and civilian.
