Two Wolverhampton men who died in the Falklands War will be remembered at a special service marking the anniversary of the end of the 1982 conflict.
Former Coppice High School student, Air Engineering Mechanic Adrian Anslow (whom Anslow Gardens in Ashmore Park is named after) from the Royal Navy and Private Mark Dodsworth from the Parachute Regiment were among the 255 British military personnel who died during the 74-day campaign.
The Central Branch of the City of Wolverhampton Royal British Legion and the Wolverhampton and District United Ex-Service Council will be holding a service at St Martin’s Church, Dixon Street, Blakenhall on Friday 13 June, the day before the 32nd anniversary of the Argentine surrender.
The service begins at 11am and those who died or were wounded in action during the Falklands War will be remembered, with the names of all Royal Navy and Parachute Regiment personnel killed in the conflict read out. Members of the public are welcome to show their support.
