My father was one of the original crew of the Coventry I was at the launch back in 74 and presented lady L with the flowers. Do any of you remember Mike Smith LMEM? Sadly he passed away in 2011 but was always very proud to be one of the first. Incidentally his photo was on the front cover of the navy news special about the launch!
Be glad to hear from anyone who remembers him.

Shipmates, just a final note of reference for this Sunday\'s 10th March 2013 Dedication service at the NMA.

The precise location of our tree is now known. The HMS Coventry D118 Tree and Plaque have been planted/situated in the Naval Review - Area 19 - Tree 311.

I hope to see a few of you there at around midday on Sunday, fingers crossed for good weather.

If not attending then the tree/plaque will of course be there whenever you get a chance in the coming months and years or whenever you can attend.

Yours Aye - Chairman

Greetings. I had the honor of visiting the Coventry many times while assigned to NATO in 1981. I still have the Coventry\'s welcome aboard pamphlet that was given to me during one of my visits. I have many fond memories of her and her crew.
