Have just found the site. I served in cov as a PO (Gunner) from 1979 to 1982 and left just before the Falklands. What wonderful memories some of the names bring back. I still have my deployment book and often look through it. She really was a special ship manned by a special crew. My fondest regards to all who remember me.

Yours aye

Second dit.

Reading through the site messages, it sounds like the 2002 reunion went down a real storm. As we are approaching the next anniversary, can anyone tell me if another re union is planned?

Very good site, and very informative. I served on the Cov from 1981 to just prior to sailing for the Falklands. By far the best ship I served on. Very good mates, very happy memories. I have a good stock of incriminating photos from the far east that I will now have to scan in and post!!

PS. I am not really in Bulgaria, I just could not be bothered to scroll down to the UK!

Came acroos the site by accident. It has now been bookmarked.

I piped Coventry out of Pompey from HMS Vernon at the start of Global 80. Little did I know that my E.R.P. would be activated. I joined the ship in Istanbul and left a couple of months later in Hong Kong.I still have my "Snoopys War Canoe" T shirt.Great ship, great ships company. I am still in contact with Bob "Ginge" Applegate. May 25th is a date I shall always remember. (Half my kit is still in the roofspace of the Port side for'd Chiefs cabin!)
