Thirty years ago today.

Thirty years ago to the day, it was reported that HMS Coventry had been sunk by Argentine Skyhawks during the Falklands War. Nineteen of her crew were lost and a further thirty injured.
Now this really does make me feel my age, I would have been twenty seven years old at the time.

Yes it does, I remember where I was at the time I heard and the shock we all got

Never forget where I was when the news about the Shef. broke. I was having a pint with a guy still serving and a few of the lads that copped the inital hit had been trained by him. To say he was gutted would be an understatement.
