This final stop in the battlefield tour is intense. Driving there is an adventure, and it is beautiful. However, when you get to the top of the Mount, you forget about the sights and focus on how hard it must have been to fight the war in 1982. The cold weather, the wind, the lack of experience. It is a place to visit while in the Falklands since it is a historic location.

The battlefield has never been touched since the end of the war all those years ago. The relics of the battle are still visible, our guide was a local chap who had recorded some of the events of the invasion on his cassette recorder. Brought back a lot of memories from the news broadcasts I remember watching as a child.

I recently paid my respects at Mount Longdon, scene of some of the most intense fighting during the Falklands conflict back in 1982.

Mount Longdon overlooks Stanley and is steeped in history due to the battle that took place at this spot.

I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the FI and Mount Longdon is just one of the experiences I shall take to my grave. 1982 could have been yesterday.
