Islanders and veterans give thanks for victory
War heroes and those they freed stood together in freezing conditions to mark the 30th anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands yesterday.
About 400 islanders gathered next to Liberation Memorial in Stanley to thank those who had ended the 74-day occupation of the remote British overseas territory.

Young and old packed into the church with standing room only in the commemoration to those who died in 1982.
