Remembering HMS Coventry and all those at sea.

Remembering HMS COVENTRY (D118) and all those at sea.

“When I go down to the ocean
I watch the restless wave
It is nature’s only tombstone
In memory of the brave

Beneath the ocean’s surface
In the deep and silent deep
In God’s Hands are the heroes
For whom our hearts still weep

The years have passed so quickly
But my vigil I still keep
They are not dead but resting
In the ocean fast asleep

There are no special markers
In this graveyard far from shore
Just restless waves from above
For now and ever more.”

HMS Coventy

Thomas Joseph Simpson
