Blue Beach Cemetery, Falkland Islands

Surely, one of the world's most isolated military cemeteries. San Carlos Bay saw the heaviest fighting for the British Forces as they used it as point to come ashore in the Falkland Islands War. Many sailors and merchant men died in the waters of the bay located behind the cemetery. It also contains the grave of Lieutenant Colonel H. Jones VC.
