Darwin Cemetery in Malvinas (Argentine Military Cemetery, Falkland Islands). (Stock Footage)

The Argentine Military Cemetery, Spanish: Cementerio de Darwin (Darwin Cemetery), is a military cemetery on East Falkland that holds the remains of 237 Argentine combatants killed during the 1982 Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas). It is located west of the Darwin Settlement close to the location of the Battle of Goose Green and there is a replica of the cemetery at Berazategui in Buenos Aires Province Argentina. As part of a joint project between the UK, Falkland Islands, Argentine Government and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), a forensic team exhumed, analyzed and documented the remains in each of the unidentified graves in the Argentine cemetery with DNA compared to that of surviving family members. The ICRC’s multinational 14-member forensic anthropology team began its efforts in June 2017 with samples analyzed in the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team’s laboratory, and scientists in the United Kingdom and Spain confirmed the results of the DNA testing. As of March 2018 the identity of Ninety bodies has been confirmed and more than 200 relatives of these soldiers were able to visit the actual grave for the first time. Full HD.
