Fellow shipmates, families and friends of HMS Coventry D118.

As agreed at this year\'s reunion I have been looking at providing a commemorative hip flask and tot bottle both with ship crest and some appropriate dates and text all presented in a suitable gift box. I have just about finalized the design and type of flask and now need an indication of how many of us will actually wish to purchase one.

The hip flask will be of polished stainless steel, with crest engraved and words to show the commemoration etc. The small double tot bottle will have a full colour ships crest. Price is coming in at around 46 per set. I will collect them to save postage.

I would have to use D118 Ass funds initially to purchase and then replenish funds as they are sold. So, to that end could you please use my personal email address to indicate if you would purchase, and how many.

I am anticipating ordering at least 15 to 20 at least and hope they sell which I am convinced they will. I can always order more should we need to. Again to save postage I will be selling them at the reunion on 20 May in Portsmouth. So, drop me a line and let me know.

Yours Aye - Chairman

Hi Bob, sorry we have no ties left but they can be ordered from various sources to be honest, some will do single orders and some will not. You will have to decide what you actually want on the blade of the tie as well as the crest of course. To date there are at least 6 versions of the tie in use. If there was enough interest I dare say we could look at getting a 35 year anniversary version?

Email directly if you need any help ordering.

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.
