Aftermath of the Falklands War


The Argentine forces in the Falkland Islands, surrendered to the British on June 14th, 1982, and the Argentine garrison in the South Sandwich Islands was evicted on June 20th, ending the war, and returning all the disputed islands (the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands) to British control.

In all, the fighting had last 74 days, and resulted in 907 deaths. Argentina suffered 649 killed, and Britain suffered 258 dead including 3 Falkland Islands civilians. Argentina's war dead are honoured by a memorial at Plaza San Martí in Buenos Aires, and Britain's by a memorial in St. Paul's Cathedral in London. In addition to the war dead, there 1,188 Argentine and 777 British casualties, some of whom were to die later from their injuries.

Defacto President of Argentina, Leopoldo Galtieri, was placed under house arrest on June 18th. He, and other senior figures in his military regime, were later to face charges of mishandling the war. Galtieri was convicted, stripped of his rank, and spent time in prison before being eventually pardoned. As a result of the fall of Galtieri's regime, democracy was restored to Argentina.

British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's popularity was transformed. She later went on to win General Elections in 1983 and 1987. Margaret Thatcher served as British Prime Minister until her resignation in 1990, making her the longest serving Prime Minister of Britain since the early 19th century.

Cuts which had been planned to the Royal Navy, were reversed. A permanent RAF fighter presence was established at a newly built airfield near Port Stanley (RAF Mount Pleasant), and the British garrison greatly upgraded.

Britain and Argentina resumed diplomatic relations in 1989. On April 1st, 2007, the British government expressed regret over the deaths on both sides during the war. However, there have been no discussions on sovereignty since the war, and the sovereignty of the islands remains in dispute between Britain and Argentina.
