The Falkland Islands Government has announced that Wednesday, April 17, 2013, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday throughout the Falkland Islands to coincide with that day's memorial service for the late Baroness Thatcher.
Six years ago (23-Sep-2007), the date of the funeral of Major General Sir Jeremy Moore, who commanded British land forces during the 1982 Falkland Islands War, was declared a day of mourning in the Falkland Islands.
A few months earlier (25-May-2007), a one-off public holiday/non-working day had been declared to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Liberation of the Falklands.
