Malvinas/Falklands War Memorial, Buenos Aires, Argentina
View Original Description
This memorial honors the Argentine solders who fell during the Malvinas War in 1982 between Argentina and the United Kingdom. Argentina had claimed the Malvinas Islands (known as the Falklands outside of Argentina) as part of its nation, seeing as they are so close to the mainland, but its inhabitants were loyal to the British crown for at least 100 years up to that point.
