Attention, history lovers and military buffs, this panoramic driving tour takes in Fitzroy and three battle memorials depicting the fierce hand-to-hand battles between Argentine and British soldiers in the bitter 74-day Malvinas/Falklands War of 1982. In conditions reminiscent of World War I, British soldiers fought to end the Argentine occupation of the islands. Your main destination is Fitzroy on the inlet of Port Pleasant. Today, a quiet sheep farm, during the war, it was the site where the British landing ships Sir Galahad and Sir Tristram were bombed by Argentine Skyhawk aircraft while transferring troops, ammunition and equipment. During the tour, Sapper Hill, Mt. William, Mt. Tumbledown, Mt. Harriet, Mt. Longdon, Wireless Ridge and the Two Sisters battlefields will be viewed and discussed, and you'll see memorials for the Welsh Guards and Royal Fleet Auxiliary. If time allows, you'll see the location of the Royal Marines' barracks.
