Falkland War Memorial Near

Breaking News

A stone which will form part of a Falklands War memorial arrived in Brecon on Sunday after an 8,500 mile journey from the south Atlantic.

The five-tonne rock is a gift from the people of the Falklands to Welsh veterans of the 1982 conflict.

On Sunday it was transported on the last leg of the journey by part-time soldiers from a TA regiment.

It is hoped the stone will form the centrepiece of a veterans' memorial to mark the 25th anniversary of the war.

Falklands veteran Andy 'Curly' Jones found the stone at the base of Mount Harriet, near the Falklands' capital Stanley on a visit to the islands last March.
