Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Heart warming and stirring memorial. Read the names of the ships, in particular. Military and commercial. TV images from 1982 spring to mind. Superbly maintained and fiercely proud to do so. The monument overlooks the harbour inlet. Inescapable if you want to understand this place, from all sides.

The names of the dead are on the walls of this memorial. Reading through the names, so many of them, who died so far from home was surprisingly moving. Made more so probably by the fact it was a sunny day with bright blue skies.

Visiting this monument was the main reason one goes to the Falkland Island to pay respect to the dead and to try to experience what it must have been like during the battle. You cannot help but be emotional when reading the the names of the war dead and the battle honours that so many received.
Margaret Thatchers bronze bust is on a plinth nearby which says"THEY ARE FEW IN NUMBER BUT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN PEACE. TO CHOOSE THEIR OWN WAY OF LIFE AND TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN ALLEGIANCE."
I guarantee you will never forget this place.

A powerful reminder of the sacrifices that can be required to guarantee freedom. After a visit to the Falklands it is obvious that the people are British Citizens. The invasion of these islands was a lawless and immoral act instigated by a corrupt government that was trying to gain public support by declaring a war it was confident it would win. It is a shame that so many on both sides were compelled to fight and die but at least in this case the end result was just and right. So sad to see that yet another corrupt and incompetent government seems intent on repeating the error. Leave these islands in peace!

To stand at that memorial is to remember the images beamed across the world on the news in 1982, that have been repeated so many times.
Far too many names on the wall, but a fitting tribute to all those who gave the ultimate price.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Not having been directly involved in the war but was at Gatwick Airport when Margaret Thatcher left to pay her respects to those who gave their lives for the local community I have always wanted to visit and pay my respects. It was very humbling to see so many people lay tributes to friends and family.

Having been on a tour to Volunteer's Point, including a first hand recollection of the conflict, this Memorial serves as a sense of realism as to the loss of lives in the conflict. It also serves as a memorial of the gratitude of the Falkland Islanders.

A very fitting tribute to those who gave their life's in 1982 to free these Isalnds and return them to Sovereign rule. Also to all those who took part in that campaign. It is wonderfully constructed with the bust of the Prime Minister, Magaret Thatcher standing guard close by!
