These photos are from Paul (Bob) Sharples, who was in the CPO's mess from June 1981 until the end. Mostly taken during the Coventry's time with Standing NATO Force Atlantic prior to Christmas 1981 plus some of the remembrance dinner onboard HMS Hermes on the first anniversary, in Norfolk, Virginia.
