Falklands Trek Challenge in November

Falklands InstaFrom 19th – 28th November, eight Falklands veterans and twelve injured servicemen from more recent conflicts will embark on a  75 mile trek across the Falklands, to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the Falklands War. Many of the injured servicemen we have met in recent years from the conflicts of Iraq and Afghanistan joined the military because of the Falklands conflict. They have met and made friends with   Falklands veterans through attending the NFA’s events over the years. Travelling from Port San Carlos to Port Stanley, the trek embraces the NFA’s ethos of “Comradeship to Challenge” and builds on our success of mixing the veterans by age and campaign. The expedition will therefore also be a fitting tribute to those who served, were injured or who fell during the campaign.
