I have just visited the National Arboretum. I cleaned the Coventry plaque which is not effected by the flooding on site. I have left a poppy for the lads still on watch.

Thinking of all those 'Still On Patrol' wherever they maybe, especially HMS Coventry shipmates. Forever in our daily thoughts. Hopefully one day we'll get a chance to pull up a bollard together again.
