"Etched in Memory" Museum Exhibition Largest Ever to Mark 40th Anniversary

The Exhibition’s “wall of remembrance”

In the lead up to Liberation Day on the 14th June, the Historic Dockyard Museum unveiled its largest ever exhibition, titled “Etched in Memory”, detailing the lead up to invasion of the islands, as well as the aftermath, including life under occupation. The exhibit also contains numerous accounts of the war from the perspective of Falkland Islanders.

A product of 18 months of hard work, the exhibition required building an entire new wall for the museum, in order to display its “wall of remembrance”, a room dedicated to all British soldiers and civilians who lost their lives during the war. Photographs display the names, ages and faces of as many British soldiers as possible who gave their lives, as well as the three Falkland Islanders who died.
