This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Falkland Islands by British Forces. To recognise the service and sacrifice of our servicemen and women, I am organising a Parade through central Havant on Sunday 19 June 2022 from 3PM. Further details are below.
Parade and Wreath Laying - Background
To mark the 40th anniversary of the Liberation of the Falkland Islands, I want to pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of Havant Constituency residents who were involved in the conflict.
That’s why I’m organising a Parade through central Havant followed by a wreath laying. The Parade will include members of the South Atlantic Medal Association, local veterans of the Falklands Liberation, the Royal British Legion, and local community and military organisations. I have also secured the attendance of a Member of the Falkland Islands Legislative Assembly, their Parliament.
- The Parade will begin at 3PM on Sunday 19 June 2022 and depart from the Ex-Servicemen’s Club on Brockhampton Lane in Havant.
- The Parade will travel along West Street, Park Road South, Elm Lane and North Street before stopping at the War Memorial outside St. Faith’s Church at around 3.15PM. This is the same route that the Remembrance Sunday Parade takes each November.
- There will be a Wreath Laying at the War Memorial led by me and the Mayor of Havant. Thanks to Havant Borough Council for their support.
Having visited the Falklands myself, I know Islanders are grateful for the support they received from the Havant Constituency in 1982 and ever since.
