Great to see something like this on the Web.
I\'m looking around before going to Church (Sunday 9th November) to remember two mates: Sunny Sunderland and Stuey Stuart (Argonaut).
Went through training with both and on to Dryad with Sunny - I served on the Coventry in 1981/82 for a short time remember lots of people but names have slipped away - The two I remember were Knocker White and Jimmy Greaves, who scared the life out of me as a Junior Seaman when I joined the ship - Once onboard I was soon on a run ashore with both in Sunderland. GREAT Memories. Sunny joined after I had left.

Then joined Invincible and I had the unfortunate job of Helo\' Controllers Assistant on that Day. I listened to a commentary of the after the attck (given by a helicopter pilot overhead). I have no shame in admitting that I sat there in tears whilst continuing to do my job. My thoughts were with Sunny and the rest orf the crew.

I hope this doesn\'t bring up memories that people would rather forget.

Best Wishes to you all !

Andy.

I remember all those places you mention that we visited on the Coventry.
Willemshaven - we did the 100 mile road race.
Keil -Sid sat on a glass table and wound up in hospital.
Lisbon - I had my drink spiked, got rolled and lost my watch - I was brought back to the ship by an American shore patrol from USS Claud V Rickets.
Gibraltar - I did the rock race for the first time (in 28 mins 28 seconds).
And Sunderland I remember very well indeed....I met the lady wife!!!

Gentlemen
I have received an email from Lieutenant Commander Graham Lovatt, Commanding Office of HMS Clyde, the Falkland Islands patrol vessel, who has informed me of his plans to conduct a service of remembrance over our Ship and then anchor off Pebble Island and weather permitting put people ashore to conduct a memorial service at the Memorial site. Hopefully there will be photographs to send on as well. I have thanked the Captain and his crew on everyones behalf.
