Official website for Simon Weston CBE; Falkland's War Veteran, author, public speaker & charity supporter.
In 1982 I was aboard the Sir Galahad when it was destroyed at Bluff Cove in the Falklands Islands. I suffered 46% burns to my body and
went on to have numerous operations. However, I was one of the lucky ones. I survived.
Since then it has been my privilege to have been invited to speak at events across the UK and abroad. I have met some wonderful people and had the opportunity to have been involved in many worthwhile charities.
I thank you for taking the time to visit my website and look forward to hearing from you.
UPDATE 21st November
It has come to our attention that Simon`s image is being used online on social media streams by right-wing organisations. We would like to confirm that Simon does not have any association with these groups. EWS -
"Simon was fabulous and the response back from the team has been more than positive. Some said they had met their hero, one member of staff phoned his Dad and Simon spoke with him, couple of the girls cried. He was very funny as well and gave some really good messages. Afterwards he sold signed copies of his children’s books (just in time for Christmas) and didn’t mind having his photo taken with individual staff which was great." Trident Social Investment Group
“Simon was absolutely brilliant and pitched his speech just where we wanted it – i.e addressing the children specifically as well as the wider audience. It’s testament to him that not
only did he hold them in thrall for 30 mins … but they all seem to have absorbed and remembered a lot of his key messages about self-belief and taking responsibility
for getting the most out of life.” Oratory Prep School
