This week a new plaque will be added to the Island War Memorial, Smith Street to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.

This week a new plaque will be added to the Island War Memorial, Smith Street to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.

The plaque will commemorate Petty Officer Peter Ian Herbert Brouard who was killed in action while serving onboard HMS Ardent in Falkland South, Falkland Islands on 21st May 1982.

PO Brouard was serving with 815 Naval Air Squadron as a member of the ship's flight and died as his ship provided protection for the landing forces which liberated the Falkland Islands.

The new plaque will be unveiled by His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor of Guernsey, Lieutenant General Richard Cripwell CB CBE and The Bailiff of Guernsey, Mr Richard McMahon on Sunday 22nd May 2022 at a service starting at 11.45am. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Helen Glencross, Head of Heritage Services, said that "it was an honour to work on this project and see P.O. Brouard added to the memorial, alongside so many other islanders who have given their lives for the freedom of others".

Lt Cdr Tim Slann RNR, Channel Island Branch Chairman of the South Atlantic Medal Association and who served in the Falklands onboard HMS INTREPID said: "This is a hugely important occasion to have P.O. Brouard remembered in the same way as other servicemen who served and lost their lives Down South have been remembered around the U.K.. On behalf of the Association, I must thank Helen Glencross for all her hard work in bringing this to fruition"
