Happy New Year to one and all. Just to give you a heads up that Gosport Borough Council and The Falkland Veterans Foundation will be organising a weekend of remembrance to remember 35 years since the Falkland War. The date is 20th and 21st May 2017. Smokey Cole of FVF will be arranging entertainment and all Falkland Vets are as freeman of the Borough invited to attend. I will have more details available soon and will communicate through this web page. Accommodation will be at a premium so please act accordingly. Best Regards

Falklands \'8 day deployment\'
Developing out of my role as ‘bish’ (OCM * Naval Chaplaincy Team) at HMS Drake, plus our chaplaincy involvement with Help4Heroes, In May 2016 I\'m leading a group of 12 ex RM & RM 1982 South Atlantic veterans down to the Falklands. The week stay will include battlefield tours, and possible an \'out to sea\'(day running) to cover at least 2 sites where Task Force ships came to a final rest. There is a definite plan to visit the Cov Memorial at Pebble Island. There may be a couple of spare places but I\'ll do a sitrep on that in a couple of weeks time. I would really appreciate any feedback/advice from any \'82 Cov veterans who have made the trip back - especially anyone who has organized or help organized it as a group.
*provisional planned timings get me back in time to be at the D118 Reunion 21/22 May

Hello, I am Jess Trevarthen, my father is Tim Trevarthen - who served on HMS Coventry when it sank. I admire every single one of you, you are all incredible heroes in my eyes! I am trying to get my dad a book together about the events of his life and how much of an inspiration he is to me! I was wondering if anyone who knew him on the ship would be able to send me a short paragraph about him, what he was like etc? this would be really incredible as it would make the gift for him!
I look forward to hearing from you all, please email me them on
Thank you for everything x
