HMS Coventry – We Will Not Forget

This week has seen the anniversary of the sinking of HMS Coventry on 25th May 1982 with the loss of 19 of her crew and another 30 injured.

It was a sad end to a proud ship and even greater loss to the families of those who will never return to the United Kingdom.

Perhaps, just perhaps the next time a politician decides that the United Kingdom is going to be embroiled in a war they should stand and make the announcement at the National Arbotereum so that everyone will understand exactly what the human cost is going to be.
