Rung in remembrance of the loss of HMS Coventry and 20 crew members 40 years ago on 25th May 1982 during the Falklands war. Believed to be the first quarter peal in method.
Associated with this quarter peal is William 'Bill' Skilleter who has organised a quarter peal for HMS Coventry most years since the Falklands war ended. Bill served on HMS Broadsword which was on patrol with HMS Coventry when she was hit and sunk. HMS Broadsword rescued 170 Coventry crew members.
