Dear Coventry members,
I have absolutely nothing to do with the RN or Coventry but was reading this website because I am giving a talk on \"damage Control Resuscitation \"to a military medicine conference and came across a photo of your ship on that fatal last day. I am using it to illustrate the concept of \"damage control\".I have had the privilege of deploying on operations alongside HM forces including many RN members. I salute your service and am impressed and most humbled by your efforts to never forget the ship and the 19 who gave their lives for freedom, pure and simple.

I believe I\'ve found a Walter Mitty claiming to have served on HMS Coventry when it was sunk in 1982.
His name is Peter Barker, can anyone remember him from back then?
He was no doubt in the navy but he does not wear a South Atlantic ribbon.
He is a police officer in calgary Alberta Canada and disclosed he was on the ship when it was sunk and lost 13 of his colleagues.
Can anyone confirm him serving on the ship at that time?
He disclosed this when speaking publically at a suicide awareness conference in calgary 13th September.

Dear shipmates et al

Your attention is drawn to the reunion tab where I have just placed next year\'s Remembrance/Reunion agenda. Please note it is back in Portsmouth due to it being the 35th year Anniversary parade in Gosport the day after our gathering.

I hope many of us will turn out, please shout if you have any questions.

Yours aye - Chairman
