HMS Glasgow is Bombed

1982. The Falklands War. This is a picture video of some of the ships and lads with a commentary by the skipper on the day we were hit by a 1000lb bomb.

    You will hear me saying a “thankyou” to the skipper when he informs us we are pulling out to rejoin the rest of the Fleet. A few bums were twittering on that day!
    I went south to the Falklands, as an atheist, I returned as a full blown Christian, after all the praying I done!

    That bought back some memories!!!, I was in the Ops room at the time of the attack. It was good to see the lads at the 25th Anniversary march in London.

    Yes I remember it well, I was in midships damage control in the combined tech office hiding under a table until the moment we were hit. I went down into the after engine room to find daylight and bright green oggin’ flooding in, Pete Travis was down there between the gearboxes on the remote CPP position. He looked white as a sheet. I stayed down there for days with the chippy. Happy days.
