Thanksgiving service at the Liberation Monument in Stanley

The Memorial service commemorated the 30th anniversary of the Liberation of the Falkland Islands by British Forces, 10 weeks after they were invaded by Argentina. 252 British Servicemen were killed during the action, plus 3 Island ladies.

50 British veterans of the Falklands war parading at the 1982 Liberation Memorial in the presence of HRH The Duke of Kent, who was representing Her Majesty the Queen.

All 50 veterans were making their first pilgrimage to the Islands and during their one week visit are being hosted by local families.

Lt. Colonel Tony Davies (Welsh Guards) described the commemorative service as having being 'absolutely excellent, and it was more specially so for the 50 first-time returning veterans. It will change their lives for the better and they will return home in a more relaxed frame of mind'.

According to the Falklands government program, Remembrance Sunday begins with a Memorial Service at Christ Church Cathedral in Stanley. This will be followed by a parade of Guard Detachments representing the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and a Detachment from the Falkland Islands Defence Force.

The Band of HM Royal Marines Scotland will lead the parade. They will be joined by Veterans and Associations and begin their march to the Cross of Sacrifice at the local cemetery.

A short service will then be held and the Roll of Honour read out and there will be two minutes silence at 11.00 am marked by the firing of the saluting guns on Victory Green.

Well done, Gustbury and never fail to disappoint us all with your total lack of class and inability for sensible contributions to issues concerning the Falklands.

The Falkland Islanders have every right to commemorate such important events such their liberation. They must count their blessings when they look at what mess Argentina is today.....a country that could be great, led by idiots.

Guts and Gizz - you may have forgotton that it is Rememberance Sunday which is the day we remember all those killed in conflicts. The day chosen for this is the Sunday closest (or in this year the actual) date of 11th November. This date marks the end of WW1.

Clearly as a nation as a nation that supported the Axis forces for the majority of WW2 we do not expect you have any shred of decency or honour. By the nature of your comments it is clear our expectations are justified.

@Guzz and gustbury.

You are just showing your ignorance of British culture and traditions.

We take Remembrance sunday very seriously - we lost just short of 1 million killed in WW1 - and you can add another 250,000 to that if you take into account troops from the Empire. Whatever the rights and wrongs of this conflict, the sacrifice required to achieve victory was horrific.

In WW2 we lost another 450,000 killed, including civilians and had many of our cities bombed and badly damaged, we fought for a just cause - the defeat of Nazism.

Then we lost another 255 in 1982 when you launched your unprovoked aggression against the Falklands.

The Falklanders will be thinking about the later losses in particular - those servicemen and civilians were killed because of your countries desire to oppress them.

The fact that we are remembering the sacrifices required to defeat your attempt to occupy the islands and then force the Falklanders from their homes at gunpoint (that was in your occupation plan - you just did'nt get around to doing it) must really stick in your craw.

I am very pleased that the veterans were welcomed by the families of the Falklands (there are STILL no Malvinas you arseholes) but this was to be expected from a close knit community marking their liberation from the despicable country that is AG.

Seeing the islands again must have brought back dark memories for the veterans as well as fond ones about their fallen mates. It is great to see that it has had a therapeutic effect on them. British soldiers: the best in the world.

Marvellous people the Falklanders, great place to live except for the sub-human Malvanistas 400 miles away. But they will be dealt with properly the next time they attempt anything stupid, one way or another.

I have never bashed Argentina. I love the country. Look at my past posts.
I just dont like what its being turned into by the hate doctrine of Cristina Kirchner, it makes me sad to see people so filled with hatred and blind to the mess she is making of the economy.
Im sure some corruption goes on in the UK, like everywhere. But the levels are miniscule compared with the Argentine administration. I know this from talking to friends (Argentinean) who have worked for the government for years.
Two of them dont agree with the regime. They are scared to talk about it, as they are being watched all the time, one thinks he may lose his job as he is not with Cristina. The other cant progress at all in her career. Both are very clever and talented and are desperately seeking a way to move abroad.
These are civil servants. In a non corrupt country, political views of a civil servant are unimportant, as long as you do your job well. I know cos I am a civil servant in the UK. Noone cares if I dont have a photo of David Cameron stuck to my computer (as if!) Noone even cares if i voice my displeasure with some of the policies he implements. Its called free speech. Something which has become rarer and harder in Arge (although the recent march may be showing a backlash)

Totally innocuous comments from an Uruguayan and an Argentinean poster are deleted.
At the same time British posters insults against the above mentioned posters, the Argentinean Nation and the Argentinean Dead are allowed to stay.

To my knowledge I nave never met any of the posters who you call my 'hypocrite friends'. As Ive said before, its not an us vs them situation and to fob off my views as exactly the same as everyone else who doesnt agree with the regime, well, thats as stupid as saying that everyone that was at 8-N is an ultra right fanatacist paid personally by Macri. I admit sometimes I read insulting comments against Argentina on this site and it makes me feel really really sad that there is such hatred, on both sides. I count some of my best friends in the world as Argentinean (and some of those, even, as Kirchnerites)
I accept Cristina is good at making emotive speeches, at uniting people through hate, but if you look at her actual policies and arguments, they are so so flawed. None of my Kirchnerite friends nor people on this website have ever said a viable explanation for why she is allowed to continue the lies about inflation and about poverty in Argentina, and why this is not a fundamental concern for anyone? Can you answer me that?

Sorry to break it to you, but inflation is important..and that is a fact not just my idea. Its the value of your money. Everyone suffers, but disproportionately the poorest in society suffer if money loses value. Or do you not agree? Poverty is dropping right? thats why when I was in BA in September thousands of people were sleeping in the streets, thousands more resorting to crime... significantly more than in 2008.

Guzz that is not what Im saying at all.
I think Nestor was the best president that Argentina had in decades. However, he has now died and left his widow in charge. She has become drunk on power and is slowly screwing up the economy. Things have been deteriorating rapidly since 2008. Interference in Indec, finding common enemies in the UK for the malvinas, US for the dollar, Spain for Repsol, the middle class and 'ultra right' for everything, and spending tons of taxpayers money on insulting Clarín (which I freely admit is far from perfect, but has been the subject of a hate campaign when the president really had much more important things to do)
These are all distraction tactics as the economy is worsening by the day. Through expropriating and refusing to pay debts, Argentina has lost the respect of the international community and its own businessmen and women, who are desperate to move abroad to more stable and less risky markets. Wait 10 years, the country will be a shell of what it could be. Definitely NOT heading in the right direction.

And people voted for her because of the Nestor death blackmail card, and the 'Argentina united through hate of common enemies' campaign she has been wielding. These distraction techniques are now becoming ineffective as the economy and peoples wealth deteriorates even further.

To have respect for others you must first respect yourself, if you could do that you might find yourself a life worth living.

Then you would not have to spend your time here trying (unsuccessfully) to wind up Brits, who are secure in their identity and belief in themselves.

Remembrance is not big in Argentina because Argentina has not fought any wars, apart from twice attempting to annex British territory in the S Atlantic and getting your arses kicked both times, your military history consists of massacring unarmed Indians and Paraguayans.

Little wonder that you have nothing sensible to say on a day like today, when we remember our heroes, because you have no heroes of your own to remember.

Very moving, and attended by wounded soldiers, their families and members of the medical and nursing staff, both military and civilian. There was standing room only, as more people than they anticipated turned up.

For all the Argentine posters on here, Remembrance Sunday is to remember and commemerate all those who died in conflict.

In the Falklands they remember both the British and Argentine fallen.

In fact the people of the Falklands have done far more to respect and honour the dead of Argentina than ANY Argentine government has ever done. You should be thanking the people of the Falklands for looking after your war dead when your own government spits on their memories.

Now I am back from my motorcycle ride, I do have a life away from this blog, I am happy to respond to your point 49.

I do not see hypocrisy in slamming a bunch of want to rule the world argies, who are holding reasonable Argentines like Simon68 and his family to ransom. There must be many reasonable Argentines who are as sick and fed up of TMBOA as I am. The whore has done more financial damage to Uruguay than enough.

Those actions directly affect me and my wife as well as all my friends, including the Argentine family next door. Why am I supposed to hold my considered views and look at the facts of my position (there’s a list coming :o) );
1) CULTURE: Which part of Argentine culture have I bashed? Certainly I castigate those whose rob and murder people of any nationality, including their own citizens, which given the sheer numbers and the police corruption certainly looks like a culture to me;

2) HISTORY: The history of AG since 1816 when it was formed (not backdated to 1810 because they hadn’t got round to putting things in writing – see the start of a trend here?) was (in respect of the Falklands) to say the least was founded on lies and perpetuated to this day by the ruling party of Peronistas by the indoctrination of their own children in these very same lies.

Peron and his whore Evita (this is a fact, she was a whore), laughingly referred to as ‘The Lady’ did everything to subjugate the masses: and this carries on to this day by the Nestor clan.

I could go on about the ‘Conquest of the Desert’ and the invasion of the mythical Malvinas as the highlights in what passes as military history for AG.

3) FEELINGS: I am extremely sorry if reasonable Argentines on here such as Simon68 and the others are in any way upset with my responses and I hereby unreservedly apologise if that is so.

But the feedback does not support your contention that this is so, just the opposite.

Now let us come to how Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Great Britain and the Brits (inc me) are treated by the Malvanistas – these people who, by all accounts are PAID to blog what they are told to blog. AG would be extrememely fortunate to have someone like Her Majesty to advise a reasonable President as she has done for our Prime Ministers (who DO attempt to run the country) for 60 years or more. But she is called a whore (which she most certainly is not) and ugly (personal opinion) but that was Jose M. So I suppose, because he is of limited intellect we can overlook.

Yes, I refer to the President as The Mad Bitch of Argentina: she is severely Bi-Polar and rants and raves (her own admission) when things do not go how she wants them to, doesn’t turn up for meetings due to ‘low blood pressre’ but has miraculous cures the very next day. How can anybody respect downright crooks who steal from their own people?

And what about your own ravings against Britain: broke, militarising the S. Atlantic (oh dear me) citizens burning shops and rioting (the facts are these were criminals taking advantage of the weakness of our stupid government led by Camoron, who (as a lifelong Conservative I knew was ‘a rung-un’ as we say in the UK) and his ‘bitch’ Clegg. For all it’s faults Britain is a first world country, doing what it can to help other countries financially. It is unsurprising therefore that we have a massive deficit.

But unlike AG, we face our problems and deal with them in a mature way. How is that hypocrisy?

There is a difference between “bashing” another's country, and being racist... just as there is between decency and “laughing” at remembrance services and those who died fighting for YOUR *right* to even be posting on this website.

I suspect that you are either too young to appreciate that, or just too ignorant, perhaps even wilfully so.

Either way I strongly doubt that DTU would support your radical incitement to hatred and contempt for the very people who gave you the ability to (supposedly) study abroad and post freely on the Internet.

SO many youngsters, and the wilfully ignorant, preach about “freedom of speech” as those it gives them the right to say whatever they like. Often it is not until they get deep in trouble that they discover that this is not so, and whatever you say may, and often does, have repercussions.

If 30 years in criminal investigations taught me many thing its that there is always somebody cleverer than you, and that if you are going to claim something which is not true, you have to be prepared for when somebody else uncovers the truth and has it pointed out to the world to see.

Those who do not respect the dead will never respect the living. You don't respect the living or dead.

If you had ever bothered attending a Remembrance day, anywhere in the world, you would know that both the dead and living and prayed for.

In British Remembrance Services we pray for all people throughout the world:

ACT OF COMMITMENT: (Spoken by the Priest)
Let us pledge ourselves anew to the services of God
and our fellow men and women: that we may help, encourage and comfort others,
And support those working for the relief of the needy and for the peace and welfare of the nations.

Response from the congregation:
Lord God our Father,
We pledge ourselves to serve you and all humankind,
in the cause of peace,
for the relief of want and suffering,
and for the praise of your name.
Guide us by your Spirit;
give us wisdom; give us courage;
give us hope; and keep us faithful now and always.

You are the biggest hypocrite on this site. Respect the dead, for they were once living. Respect their memory, respect their sacrifice, respect their courage.

You have no respect for anyone, living or dead, Guzz, your posts on this site have proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I must say that I find it a bit demoralizing to read some of the posts (such as Conqueror's) which vilify the whole population of Argentina because of a video that shows a very large crowd cheering the military junta for having taken the Falklands in 1982.

It is true that a large part of our people DID think this was a good thing, but an even larger part realised that the drunken idiot Galtieri had bitten off more than he could chew.

This large majority is about the same demographic grouping that took part in the 13th. September protest, the thinking sector of the Argentine population, those that realised that going to war with Britain was the next best thing to suicide.

It would be very nice to be able to comment on these threads without the generalisations that are constantly used, i.e. “all argies are...” or “all brits are...”

This thread started out with Brit bashing, niether Guzz nor Gustbury were retaliating because a Brit had bashed Argentina, so Guzz and Gustbury you two were instigating the ridiculous “war of words” and as both of you, however much you try to hide behand your Uguayan persona Guzz, are Argentine, I would like to apologise profusely to the Brits on this thread for the insult to your war dead and to our own.

(iii) In 1833 when Vernet's garrison remained only x1 settler chose to return to the Argentine federation
(iv) Argentina had protested about the British presence on the Falklands right up to and including 1849 but then signed the 'Convention of Settlement' treaty with Britain in 1850 where 'a state of perfect harmony had been restored.'
(v) In his address to Argentine Congress on 1 May 1869, President Sariento said, 'that the country had no claims on other nations.'
(vi) after 1850 the Argentine state produced tens of thousands of maps that either excluded the Falklands from Argentine territory or showed the islands in a different colour.
(vii) After protesting about the British preseence on the Falklands in 1849 Argentina did not make another official protest until 1941. In international law claims are considered defunct if there is a gap of 50 years or more between protests on sovereignty.
(viii) The Falkland Islanders have the right to self detrermination under the UN charter they do not wish to become associated with Argentina.

Argentine claims regarding sovereignty of the Falklands are completely baseless just like INDEC's inflation figures. If a government is going to tell lies about inflation and growth figures telling lies and spreading propaganda around the World regarding the history of the Falklands comes relitively easy.

November 11th should be a time to respect and honour all the war dead and promote understanding between peoples so that it should never happen again.

Which part of 'all people' are you finding difficult?

Is that not inclusive enough for you? Are you suggesting that the Church of England shouldn't pray for its head and for the country, or are you suggesting that some formula be found to make you Argentines feel more a part of things? I think if you had a specific mention everyone would want one.

I'm not sure where you're going with this one. On Remembrance Day, people think about the sacrifices that were made so that we can enjoy the freedoms of today, and remember those who have suffered as a result of war. I'm not sure how you imagine the Argentine dead fitting into that here. I mean, who do you see laying the flowers and what form should the prayers take?

@102 Don't be demoralized. I've always been polite to you. Let me pose some simple questions.
(1) The video link I included is evidence for my views. It's not the only video. Where is the evidence for your contention?
(2) If the “demographic grouping” you mention is so huge, wouldn't it be more meaningful if they were “doing” rather than “thinking”.
(3) If you go through as many articles on this site as seems to you appropriate, how many contributors (a) support the Falkland Islanders and self-determination; (b) support the false argentine claim to the Falkland Islands and territorial aggression (including nuclear attack)? Amongst group (a), how many are argentine or south american?
(4) If there are so many argentines, i.e. “an even larger part”, who are content for the Falkland Islanders to have the system of government that they wish on their Islands, where are they? This is, effectively, a “confidential” site. It's not the same as speaking out publicly against “the Party” on the streets of Nazi Germany, is it?

You would have us, or at least me, believe that the majority of argentines are not interested in the Islands. My response to that is simple. Prove it!

Yes, it was next to suicidal for Argentina to go to war against Britain. A repeat performance will be even more suicidal. So why is this supposedly huge “demographic grouping” giving tacit support for the current “war”? Not being waged with guns, aircraft, rockets or missiles, but a war nevertheless. In 1939-1945 ALL Germans were “the enemy”. NOW, ALL argies are the enemy. Until they prove that they aren't.

For all we know, you may be the only argentine that might support the Islanders and their wishes. Even you might be here to try to gauge how committed Brits are to the security and defence of the Islands. How far are we prepared to go? The answer to that is simple. All the way. Whatever it takes. It's argies and argentina that need to, demonstrably, change. We won't!

The truth of the matter, Conqueror, is that I have absolutely no obligation to answer you, but I will:

1) I don't remember the site that has the info, but I do remember reading that the manifestation in Plaz de Mayo on 2nd April 1982 was estimated to be on the order of 200.000 people which represented about 0.6% of the population at the time.
2) I don't consider the grouping that I belong to so huge, on 8N about 1 million people took to streets in Bs. As. out of a population of 8 million. As to “doing” instead of “thinking”, that is exactly what we did last Thursday!
3) & 4) I have no interest in totting up the number of comments, for or against the self determination of the Islanders, it has no bearing on what I think and comment on this site, as to #4 The great majority of Argentines couldn't give two tuppenny damns about the Falkland Islands, they are too busy trying to keep body and soul together. The only Argentines that care about the Islands are the veterans who fought there in 1982 and the malvinistas who get paid for writing rubbish on these sites.
If you honestly believe that ALL Argentines are rabid malvinistas I really feel sorry for you, its like saying that all Brits hate the French, just not true!!!!!

Unfortunately, his/her blind hatred towards Argentines and the obnoxious responses he/she posts are both trollish and infantile. I certainly cannot defend the vile and putrid dirge that is issued under his/her Mercopress pseudonym. I personally think he adds as much value as Pirat Hunter to any debate from all I have read here over the last year. I have now put him on my ignore list, along with PH. Either of them serve no purpose toward debate and would have been chucked off many other internet forums a long time ago.

That sums up why you lost in 1982 and why he is there honouring the dead, killed while evicting a facsist occupation carried out with the express wish of evicting British people from their homes at gunpoint.

You sum up why we are'nt interested in negotiating the islanders' future with you either. Why would we give our people over to the likes of you?

You're invasion was based on an underestimation of my country, fueled a deep seated sense of artificially whipped up aggrievement over events that happened so long along that you have to do a lot of digging into history to find out what happened.

When you do carry out the research you find out that your countries claims are a bit shakey, to say the least.......

What a waste of life the whole thing was- and it was your nations' fault.

Could you supply an English translation for the above.

If it is your territory, why are you not there?

There are no Malvinas Argentinas, they live in tiny imaginations along with the Sudetenland, Alsace-Lorraine, Palestine and other little pipe-dreams of despots and desperate people. At least those other places do have some historical precedence giving them at least a wisp of legitimacy.

“Why England supports “falklands” and prevents Scottish independence”

It's the UK at the moment. England is a part of the UK. The UK is not England.

There will be politicians arguing against Scotland leaving the UK, but the referendum in Scotland has not been outlawed by the UK government as it's going ahead in 2014.
If the Scots vote for Independence it is not, and will not, be prevented as the Scottish (like the Falkland Islanders) are entitled to the right to self-determination, whether sections of UK politics like it or not.
As an Englishman, I have no objections to Scotland attaining independence if they vote for it.
It is a pity that Argentina disrespects the right of the Falkland Islanders to vote when they themselves have democracy, whereas the UK is not preventing the Scottish independence referendum.

It is of no interest to us WHAT you want in relation to the Falklands. As an Argentinian. it is none of your business You have absolutely no rights or say in how they conduct their affairs or whom they invite to THEIR land.
End of story.
