The South Atlantic Medal was awarded to British military personnel and civilians for their service in The Falklands War.
Issued to nearly 30,000 people, the medal is a coin struck by the Royal Mint and issued by the Army Medal Office, and was only given to those who completed at least one full day's service in the Falklands or South Georgia, or 30 days in the operational zone including Ascension Island.
In 1982, The South Atlantic Medal Association 1982 was formed in order to maintain and promote a sense of pride and comradeship among all veterans of the South Atlantic campaign, and to re-establish and strengthen links with the people of the Falkland Islands.
The South Atlantic Medal Association 1982 rely completely on donations and volunteers.
