Pebble Island – War Memorials

Pebble Island is known for both its wildlife and its numerous wrecks of Argentine planes dating back to the 1982 war. We came across a number of the wrecks on my tour down to the west end of the island. It’s incredible how well the wrecks are preserved, and also how scattered the sections of the planes are from their original impact sites. There are also a couple of memorials, to the crew of the HMS Coventry who was sunk north of the island and the crew of an Argentine Learjet.
