It was thirty years ago today that the British Navy liberated the islands from the invading Argentines, after 74 days.
All the names of the 255 British servicemen killed in the conflict will be read out, along with the three Falklands civilians who were killed in fighting. Some 650 Argentines were also killed in the war.
Prime Minister David Cameron has again spoken of his support for those living on the Falkland Islands, and that is has "not wavered in the last 30 years and it will not in the years ahead".
He also paid tribute to those who gave their lives thirty years ago, saying, "their bravery reminds us that freedom is only won, and peace is only kept, because there are exceptionally brave people willing to journey to the other side of the world to lay their lives on the line.”
He speaks as disagreements over the sovereignty of the islands looks set to continue. After complaining to the UN about the presence of British war ships in the area, the Argentine government have begun publishing adverts looking for fresh negotiations on the ownership of the Falklands, which they call Las Malvinas.
The Argentine government have also been turning away cruise ships flying British flags, and are threatening legal action against oil firms exploring the islands’ coasts.
