Posted on April 8, 2012 by


Dear Members, Friends and Supporters,
 
On the Saturday the 19th May 2012 we will be unveilling a brass plaque in the Sun Room – Allied Special Forces Grove.
 
This plaque commemorates the Soldiers of 22 SAS and supporting Special Forces personnel who lost their lives in the Falklands War 30 years ago.
 
It was donated by the Newport Parachute Regiment Association to the Grove. It will be fixed inside the Sun Room facing down “Goose Green” to the Falklands Fighting Islanders Orchard and trees, which will eventually be dedicated to courage and tenacity of Terry Peck, Trudy McPhee and all those who led the first British Resistance Force since the Second World War. 3 perry cider trees will eventually be dedicated to the 3 women islanders who died in Port Stanley – Doreen Bonner, Mary Goodwin and Susan Whitley.
 
This fine Orchard to the Fighting Islanders was donated by John Worle of Herefordshire.
 
Also on May 19th.  the Escape Lines Memorial Society will be dedicating their memorial in the Grove.
 
On Sunday 20th the South Atlantic Medal Association will be dedicating their memorial in the National Memorial Arboretum.  More about this via www.thenma.org.uk events section.
 
More information about the trees can be found in our website NEWS section.
