Un – Welcome to Northampton Day 144

144 Days - Falkland Islands could have been recovered twice
144 Days – Falkland Islands recovered in half the time

In 1982 in 72 days the UK put together a military task force, sent 8,000 miles and fought a series of battles which successfully led to the recovery of and more importantly hoisting the UK Flag over the Falkland Islands.

It is therefore official that Northampton Borough Council will have taken at least twice as long to commission and install a Welcome to Northampton sign.
