Falklands Remembrance Poppy Pin

Falklands Remembrance Poppy Pin

This unique, limited edition poppy pin is part of our Falklands 40 commemorative collection. Skillfully made by Icarus Originals, the outer petals are red enamel, and the centre of the pin is made from metals acquired from HMS Hermes. ‘Falklands, lest we forget’ is also featured on the back of the pin.

The lapel pins have been produced to remember the service of the 30,000 sailors, marines, soldiers, airmen and merchant mariners who participated in the Falklands War, as well as the many civilians who supported the war effort, and the 255 British personnel who sadly lost their lives.

Falklands Remembrance Poppy Pin

Britain and the Falklands

The Falklands War started on 02 April 1982 and lasted 74 days, during which time seven ships were lost to enemy action, nine aircraft were shot down, and 255 British personnel lost their lives, the names of whom are inscribed on the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.

In the 40th anniversary year of the Falklands War, we remember the service and sacrifice of those who fought to liberate the islands and the role that HMS Hermes played in leading the taskforce.

About Icarus Originals

Icarus Originals are a UK based company who specialise in generating awareness, supporting aircraft restoration projects and charitable causes through the production of giftware and collectibles made using surplus airframe materials.  

They are co-founded and jointly owned by two individuals with extensive service backgrounds: John Mercer is an RAF officer with over 20 years of service with extensive spells working in support of the Tornado aircraft. The company was initially founded to commemorate the Tornado GR4 following its retirement from service and ensure that all those individuals with a connection to the aircraft were able to own a legitimately (and commercially), sourced piece of the aircraft whilst raising funds for good causes. Alan Lock was a member of the RAF University Air Squadron before embarking on a career as a commissioned officer in the RN. After losing his eyesight in service, Alan was medically retired but remains a proud ambassador for Blind Veterans UK and X-Forces and has completed several noteworthy challenges including rowing the Atlantic, conquering the Poles as well as swimming the English Channel.

Metals acquired from the HMS Hermes were approved for Icarus Originals to use to create this pin by the MOD and, using their skills, they have produced these pins to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.
