Came acroos the site by accident. It has now been bookmarked.

I piped Coventry out of Pompey from HMS Vernon at the start of Global 80. Little did I know that my E.R.P. would be activated. I joined the ship in Istanbul and left a couple of months later in Hong Kong.I still have my \"Snoopys War Canoe\" T shirt.Great ship, great ships company. I am still in contact with Bob \"Ginge\" Applegate. May 25th is a date I shall always remember. (Half my kit is still in the roofspace of the Port side for\'d Chiefs cabin!)

Nice site Damien, I was around at the time flying Lynx off another DD (Exeter) which had just replaced the Sheff. I remember the shock of hearing that the Coventry was hit, as for us we nearly got the load that finally piled into AC. Christ, I was just airborne and thought it was my deck - bad moment!

All a long time ago but this Iraq stuff brings it back.

Cheers - keep the memories ,
