Hello all.
Plenty of memories here i had simply forgotton about.

Really enjoyed the reunion last year in Coventry but cannot make this year as overseas in May.

Looks like it will be 2015 for me.

Thanks forcall those that work so hard to keep association going.

Like so many other accounts on here Cov certainly was the happiest and best ship I served on.

Regards to all

Hi, I have just read Capt Hart-Dyke's book "Four weeks in May". What a riveting book. I had a brief sojurn(!) on Coventry in 1980. I was the Chief GI in Vernon and piped the ship out when she sailed for the round the world trip. Little did I know that my ERP would be activated and I joined the ship in Instanbul. Lots of good memories, "gentlemen's: PT, good food and the "sod's opera" when Solly, the buffer, mangled the skipper's watch! The ship's company was outstanding, they worked hard and played hard and they gave me, the newcomer, loads of help, especially in the op's room. I still have my "Snoopy" T shirt, given to me by one of the chiefs on the flight, on the night before I flew home from Hong Kong. The Joss tried to keep me onboard for the Shanghai trip, but drafty wouldn't wear it!
I always raise a glass to that fine ship every May 25th.

Dear friends.

Are you aware that if you are a member of the Type 42 Association you are now entitled to stay at the Senior Rates Mess in HMS Nelson for social reasons.

If you contact me, I can sent you the information sheet from the Mess Manager.

See my email address to the left remember to remove the No Junk Mail, from the end.

Regards

Rocky.

Having just watched an episode of "Above and beyond" I am again left with a lump in y throat at the greatness of our people! Also I noted the name of the Master? of Coventry as David Hart-Dyke. I was at prep school in Malvern Link with someone of that name and must suppose that it is the same man. If so it would be good to make contact with him if possible.

Thinking of my lovely brother, Frank Armes, who would have been 53 today.
Still missed so much after all these years.
