Like wise, a big thank you to Jack Russell for arranging and conducing the memorial service in Portsmouth last Sunday, and Rocky with his balancing act getting the ‘White Ensign’ up (without a harness).
A very special ship and a very special bunch of people!

A big thank you to those who turned up at Portsmouth this past weekend. It is always a pleasure to renew friendships. Another memorable gathering. A special thank you to Jack Russell for his heartfelt and compassionate words said at the memorial service. I look forward to the same again next year. Best regards Topsy Turner (ex- kilick RP).

PS. Stevie Inglby you\'re still my hero

Shipmates, families and friends

First of all many thanks to all that turned out last weekend and to those that have sent messages and good wishes to me personally re our Remembrance/Reunion in Coventry last Saturday 25th May. It was great to meet up again and raise a glass and although it was a rollercoaster of emotions for many we did ourselves proud with many of us turning out to remember our shipmates still on patrol and those we have lost along the way.

Pictures from the weekend will go up onto this website shortly, a few have been forwarded to me for consideration already and no doubt more will follow in the coming weeks.

As many will already know, from the AGM on Saturday, I was once again voted in (encouraged) to continue in the role as your HMS Coventry D118 Association Chairman, this I am happy to do and consider it an honour to be allowed to continue, but myself and your committee do need your continued support along the way.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Coventry RNA, Holy Trinity Church and Coventry Lord Mayor for most excellent support over the weekend.

Finally, I will place a draft agenda for next year’s 2014 event on the website in the coming weeks, but for now please make a diary note that it will take place in Portsmouth over weekend 24/25 May 2014 and will be at the GIs Association again on Whale Island Saturday 24th May afternoon/evening for both AGM and Reunion. The Service of Remembrance will take place 1030 - 1115 on Sunday 25th May at the FI Memorial Old Portsmouth; full details later, and we will proudly march to the Service once again.
Meanwhile, I wish you all well and good health but please keep monitoring the website for any updates or news.

Yours Aye – Chris Howe MBE - Chairman

Taking the D118 Remembrance service again this year was a total privilege and a humbling honour to share a few drinks with you guys afterwards.

To all the lads who served on The Coventry down south. Especially the ones that did not return RIP from the Broadsword Association.
