Falkland Islands Representative, Richard Hyslop, said, “Last week I was honoured to visit St Paul’s Cathedral in London and to attend the Service of Remembrance at Pangbourne College on behalf of the people and Government of the Falkland Islands in order to mark Liberation Day. Falkland Islanders will be forever grateful to all those served during the Falklands War and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice to liberate our Islands and to protect Islanders’ right to self-determination”.
