Commemorating HMS Sheffield

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

When Meg visited the Falklands Islands in early January as part of a Ministerial visit, she wanted to lay a wreath at the Monument to HMS Sheffield, sunk in 1982 with the loss of 20 lives. Unfortunately, high winds meant that the RAF had to cancel the helicopter flight and the wreath had to be left with the armed forces for them to take on a future occasion.


The helicopter from HMS Nottingham was able to take and lay the wreath on the Monument for HMS Sheffield, which is on Sealion Island. The Flight Pilot from the helicopter had actually served on the HMS Sheffield.


Meg said:


“I’m pleased that the wreath has now been placed on the Monument to HMS Sheffield and I want to thank the crew of the helicopter. I know from my visit, that the Falkland Islanders appreciate and are grateful for the sacrifices made by our armed forces that set them free.”
