Hello to you all again, I\'m sorry I didn\'t make it to the reunion but I will next year just to put the faces to all those names that give me such fond memories. I bumped into another old Coventry sailor yesterday, Martyn (Tigs) Tigwell, I told him about the site and we had a great chat about old times, we were wondering, whatever happened to Eddie Campbell (of the Casual Onlookers fame), I was hoping Billy Barnham might know. If anyone else knows can you contact me. I have a contact telephone number for \'tigs\' if anyone wants to contact him.

My thoughts were with you all on the 25 May as they are every year. She was certainly a wonderful ship and I am proud to have served in her and with most of you.

Yours aye

As promised, I went to the Memorial on Liberation Day and paid my respects. We had a great vacation in UK, only 2 wet days in 2 weeks (surprisingly) and we\'ve just dodged Hurricane Dennis this weekend.

As for the tri-service event that Rocky mentioned, the Freedom of Gosport is being given to all Falklands veterans on 24 August 2005 at 1100. Email me for more details. I won\'t be able to be there in person but I\'ll be there in spirit.

I know it was a long time ago, but I remember my time onboard the USS Claude V. Ricketts DDG5 in \'81, and I\'ve still got the ball cap and photo signed by the CO. The only drawback about being onboard was there was no beer!

Yours Aye.

Ginge, It is a shame that that work got in the way mate, but looking forward to seeing next year.

Busta - No change I think mate, eh?
