The Lord Mayor of Coventry, Cllr Tony Skipper was joined with members of the public to attend a remembrance service at Holy Trinity Church today.
The service marked the 35th anniversary of the sinking of HMS Coventry and remembered the 19 men who lost their lives.
The congregation also stood silent for a minutes silence at 11am, just days after the tragic events of the Manchester attack.
HMS Coventry was a Type 42 destroyer in the Royal Navy during the Falklands conflict. It was struck by three bombs on 25 May 1982. Two of the bombs caused critical damage which caused flooding aboard the ship. Within 20 minutes, HMS Coventry had to be abandoned. It then capsized and sank.
19 crew were killed, 30 were injured and the other 170 were later rescued.
A memorial plaque to those who lost their lives on HMS Coventry can be found inside Holy Trinity Church, Coventry.
