Burglars ransacked my fallen Falklands hero son's bedroom on 40th anniversary of the war – I'd kept it untouched

A MUM has told how burglars ransacked the bedroom of her fallen Falklands hero son – on the 40th anniversary of the war.

Paratrooper Jason Burt was killed by a sniper on Mount Longdon at 17-years-old just two days before Argentina surrendered.

His grieving mum Terry, 86, had left his room untouched since April 1982 when her brave son went off to fight.

But last month, just days before the 40th anniversary of the Falklands war, thieves broke their way into her home and ransacked the bedroom.

They ransacked the room for valuables, throwing his clothes on the floor while they searched.

Terry told The Mirror: “How could people do such a terrible thing? 

“My son died for his country and these scumbags came into his room. 

“It was particularly upsetting as it was so close to the anniversary.”

Last week the Princess Royal joined veterans at a service to remember those who fought or died in the Falklands War, and to mark the conflict's 40th anniversary.

The Falkland Islands Government organised the service of reflection and remembrance in St Faith's Chapel at St Paul's Cathedral.

Anne and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, joined families to pay their respects before laying wreaths at the South Atlantic Task Force Memorial inside the cathedral.
