Shipmates, families and friends of HMS Coventry D118 -

As Chairman I am now reflecting after a very busy and emotional period over the last week or so. It was great to see so many Cov shipmates (inc the skipper) there at last Saturday\'s service of remembrance and reunion, after 35 years we still care and remember with such passion and long may it be so.

Also the Gosport FVF parade the following Sunday morning, an impressive turn out by Coventry D118 and by far the largest group on parade, BZ shipmates.

Some of us also attended in Coventry city yesterday on the 25th May, the Lord Mayor held his own service of remembrance for HMS Coventry, we paraded the standard and the cross of nails at the Holy Trinity church, around a dozen or so shipmates and family members turned out which was impressive after being down south last weekend, so again BZ to those of us attending. We were of course so well supported by the local council, community, cadet force and the RNA as well as other organisations such as T42 Association and HMS Birmingham. Thank you so much for that.

As chairman, after a short rest, I now look to next year\'s agenda and have already had early discussions yesterday in Coventry, we will be holding the annual gathering in Coventry City on Friday 25th May 2018, likely muster time around 1700 or so, so get the date in your diaries and keep checking the website for the itinerary in the coming months.

I am sure you all took the tot yesterday as I did on several occasions, so \'Up Spirits\' as we remember all our shipmates still on patrol from 35 years ago. Stay safe and well.

Yours Aye - Chairman
