The Falklands Chapel

The Falklands Chapel
Serial No: N/A
Period: Post-WWII
Reference: N/A
Museum: London
Location: Hangar 5

In 1983, shortly after the Falklands Conflict, a suggestion was made to re-work a shipping container into a chapel for the island’s airfield at RAF Stanley. It replaced a cold, leaky tent which had been serving as the RAF Church. The altar cross was made from the brass from an Argentinian shell-case.

The Chapel is on display in Hangar 5.
