"THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE"

THE FALKLANDS 1982

Paul T MILLS

He was on H.M.S. Coventry as a PO marine engineering mechanician. He was in the engine room when it was hit by a thousand pound bomb. He mentioned later that he got a 'knock on the head'. Unfortunately this knock had caused a fracture of his skull that remained sadly undiagnosed for several months. Later that year he fell unconscious a couple of times, the ensuing medical investigation revealed a brain tumour. The rate of growth indicated that the cause was the fracture. He was operated on, but only to buy him a few more months. He died on the 29th March 1983.
