FALKLANDS MEMORIAL PLANTATION RE-DEDICATION CEREMONY – THURSDAY 6th DECEMBER 2012

A number of events and commemorations have taken place during 2012 to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Falklands conflict which has allowed us to remember and honour the men and women who took part or lost their lives during that conflict.

To mark the end of this special year The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Frank Jonas would like to invite you to attend a ceremony on Thursday 6th December at 11.00am to Re-dedicate the Falklands Memorial Plantation on Portsdown Hill, where 258 Beech trees – one for each member of the Task Force and Falkland Islanders killed during the conflict - were planted in 1982.

The dedication of the Plantation was carried out in 1982 by Lt Col Sir James Scott, the then Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire. On December 6th, exactly 30 years to the day of the first dedication, Dame Mary Fagan, the current Lord Lieutenant will undertake the Re-dedication in this anniversary year.

The ceremony will commence at 11:00am.

Your association is welcome to provide a Standard to take part in the ceremony but unfortunately, we are unable to provide any expenses for them to attend.

If you wish to attend the ceremony, please contact the Events team on 023 9284 1400 or by email at [email protected]​ by Friday 23rd November 2012.

Yours sincerely

Heather Todd
Assistant Events Manager
