Since the Falklands Conflict, Colin & Eileen Davies have given many years of unstinting friendship, help and assistance to literally hundreds of personnel who have been deployed to JSSU (Falkland Islands).

They are back over visiting family, and this could be the last occasion that Colin and Eileen visit the UK.   It should prove to be a fantastic opportunity to get-together and reminisce about our times “Down South” whilst at the same time giving Colin and Eileen the thanks they so richly deserve after all these years of loyal support and friendship to us all.

If you would like to attend, and are keen to catch up with old friends and colleagues, then please respond to the invitation attached.
