2012 marked the 30th Anniversary of the Falklands Conflict. In April 1982, the Argentine forces invaded and occupied the British Falklands Islands and South Georgia. The British Government deployed a naval task force to retake the territory, backed up by a team of formidable RAF aircraft including the legendary Vulcan and the recently introduced Sea Harriers. British Army land forces also played a pivotal role during the 74-day war.The conflict ended on the 14th June when the Argentine Junta surrendered.
As with any war, the fire brigade plays an essential role and the Stanley Fire Brigade was no exception. Shortly after the conflict, the Islands received two Bedford Carmichael Water Tenders. These appliances served the community as they rebuilt their lives and their homes after the expulsion of the Argentine invaders.
This Oxford model is an authentic replica of one of the two Bedford TK fire appliances used at that time. The vehicle is represented in a special Liberation of the Falklands 30th Anniversary sleeve.
