Veterans farewell to Sir Galahad

Veterans' farewell to Sir Galahad


The Sir Galahad, a ship whose name is associated with one of the darkest days in recent British military history, is making her final visit to Wales.


Her predecessor was bombed during the Falklands War in 1982 with the loss of 48 lives, many of them Welsh Guards

The replacement Sir Galahad is at Pembroke Dock over the weekend to say goodbye to veterans of the conflict.

The captain and crew will also take part in a naming ceremony for Tenby's new RNLI boathouse, called Sir Galahad.

The original Sir Galahad was towed out to sea and sunk as a war grave after the attack in the Falklands on 8 June 1982, at the height of the British operation to recover the islands from their Argentine invaders.
Among the survivors was Welsh Guardsman Simon Weston, who suffered horrific burns in the attack

I did a few trips on the original old girl. Norway and Denmark to name two. Time just zips by!
