My memories of the Falklands war was meeting the QE2 off the Needles on her way home with the injured. Dripping in rust. Escorted her up to the Ocean terminal, with, of course hundreds of others. The fact that I was sailing on a Swan 65 ketch with a crew that had just completed the Whitbread made it a whole bunch more fun. To see a crew like that dip pole jibe a kite on a 65 is something to watch. However, we did P off the Hamble HM by sailing up the Hamble with the kite up. Skipper dropped the boat onto Moody's berth without ever using the engine.
Yes, we should remeber those that lost thier lives for a noble cause.
