The war to regain the Falkland Islands and South Georgia islands was the
last war that the UK fought for freedom not WW2. I for one proudly wear an
armistice day Poppy for the dead of two world wars irrespective as to which
army they fought in, anyone who slogged through th mud of Flanders, Ypres,
Paschendal Gallipoli or Palestine deserves remembering with honour and I
live in Sweden (I'm British) where armistice day celebrations are unknown.
If our military (irrespective as to which nation we belong) deport
themselves honourably in the face of the enemy be they honourable or
otherwise, then we should rightly be proud of them.
