Stephen Tonkin

HMS Coventry



I was at FMG with Stephen Tonkin when the Falklands war erupted.
We used to do the rubix cube sat on a settee watching TOTP.
Stephen was drafted to HMS Coventry and I was drafted to security Portland. So upsetting to hear what happened to him. Such a nice young man. I only knew him for a short time working FMG but he left a great impression on me. Always in my thoughts.
