31 years today

To those I left behind...........

In the southern ocean
White crests flow,
Upon the sea, no crosses show.
On a distant shore
Row upon Row,
Marks the graves many colleagues lay.
But, beneath the sea are many the same,
In their watery grave "Sir Galahad" they still remain,
Being from differing Services,
They lay together, as one, and at peace,
Remembered, united together, but never forgotten.
SIR GALAHAD  - 8 June 1982.
R.I.P shipmates.

RFA SIR GALAHAD Bombed and Destroyed 8 June 1982
