The only pictures to emerge from the day of the unveiling are of an event hosted by the Governor in Government House.

Each day starts with a haiku and there are many pictures of life on board SS Ushwaia.

Day 3 - February 25, the day in Stanley starts with this haiku

Ripples and murmurs,
wind whipping water,
waves of anticipation.

Shimmer of crimson,
flash of bright metal,
gasps of appreciation.

Steel catches sunlight,
vanquishing shadows,
warming hearts frozen by loss.

Signposting the way,
honouring heroes,
a flame of affirmation.
