The Falkland Islands Resistance spied on, provided vital intelligence, sabotaged and generally disrupted the life of the enemy who invaded on the 2nd April 1982. When the British Task Force landed, many islanders helped transport troops, supplies and ammunition across the islands as the battles raged. Some acted as guides for the troops and went on to fight with them in decisive battles. They should be rightly proud of their achievements and hope that it will inspire future generations of Islanders.

Mrs Doreen Bonner, Mrs Mary Goodwin and Mrs Susan Whitley lost their lives towards the end of the Conflict and have individual plaques commemorating them.
