You should be very proud of your lad Patrick Joseph, he\'s obviously got your gift when it comes to organising stuff. I can see that I am one of many that have missed the Chatham event, however I was contacted by a number of ex-S&S (aka Douds, Wanty and Potts)a couple of weeks before and we think we will get together later this year, and possibly \"up North\". Can somebody please let me know what is happening at Sultan in June, although I guess it is the annual memorial service. Details please anyone! Once again, well done Damien and remember, as your Dad always used to say, \"It\'s a big firm Partner\". God Bless all who are reading this, especially Ex COV\'s.

Great website



It has all come back to me again particularly strongly this year. At quiet moments I recall the events of those few days and especially the 25th. I don\'t know how long I spent on the focsle that day bringing the Coventry boys on board. Their resolute composure and attitude that night is still with me in my thoughts, as are those I never knew that we left behind that night. It is now half a lifetime away yet nothing I have done or am likely to do will have as profound an effect on me as those few short days.

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.

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

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.
