HMS Coventry D118 Reunion/Remembrance
2017 – Portsmouth
20th - 21st May 2017
The 2017 HMS Coventry D118 reunion will take
place over the weekend of 20/21 May 2017 and will be in Portsmouth/Gosport area. The reason for holding a second year in a row
in Portsmouth is due to the 35th FI Veterans Anniversary Parade in
Gosport the same weekend, hence made good sense to be back in Portsmouth for
obvious reasons. The following itinerary
has been planned to which, as always, you can join in as much or as little as
you would like. It would of course be
great to get as many of us together as possible for the planned activities on
this very special 35th year anniversary Remembrance, Reunion and
