I thought about it all over again yesterday (25.05) as I do every year. I hope there are plenty of hang overs today after your reunion. Hope to see some of you Covs for a beer at Sultan in June. Great site. Well done Danien. Best wishes to you all. Tanz. ex LS(S). Treasurer Broadsword Assoc.
20 years ago tonight I lost a major part of my life, HMS Coventry; and along with it 19 shipmates, whom I will never forget; God bless you all. I always make a point of having a few moments to myself on the 25th May, and a beer or two – Unfortunately I was unable to make Coventry's re-union this year, but hopeful I will be there on the next one. Hope to see all you ex-Cov's at HMS Sultan in June. Good Luck Shipmates Paul
My brother was MEM STEPHEN TONKIN I would like to thank Damien for the hard work he has put into making this website possible, and for keeping the memory of HMS COVENTRY and its 19 crewmembers that were sadly lost that day in our thoughts.

Cannot make the reunion this year but will do eventually. There's a couple of photo's of H.M.S. Coventry in the R.S.L Club where I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Good to see a site at last. Hope all the old mates bought computers!
A Fine Web Site . Its good to see other sites for other ships that served in 82. The photos of her going down are a sad site indeed. Good luck with the reunion. Best Regards Johno (Ex HMS Sheffield)
Well done, the site is brilliant. We are no longer the forgotten ship. Thankyou.
An excellent web site, it is good to find a site up and running dedicated to HMS Coventry - D118. Hopefully the site will stand the test of time, and bring together Coventry's ships company of past. I served aboard her prior to, and during the Falkland's and hopefully I will be able to pass on some of the few photographs that remain from my time as one of the 'Ships Company'. Well done Damien.
