Path to Stanley (Falkland Islands)

An easy one for me this week. This is a photo of me on the Moody Brook track which leads into Stanley (Falkland Islands).

I recreated a famous photo from the 1982 conflict in which a Royal Marine is seen walking towards Stanley on this very track with the Union Jack flag flying.

First photo is the original from the 1982 confict, details of the photo in the caption.

The second photo is of me on the same track in December of 2014

Here is a link to my blog about my most recent visit to the Falklands back in Decemb er of 2014.

Royal Marine Pete Robinson (Peter Robinson) of 40 Cdo RM anti tank troop attached to 45 Cdo RM yomping towards Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, with the Union Jack flying from his backpack. The image was taken in June 1982 as the Marines approached Port Stanley, picking their way across a minefield, when word that the Argentines had surrendered and another Marine produced the flag, which Robinson strung from an aerial in his pack. The image became one of the iconic images of the Falklands War.
