HMS Glamorgan Falklands 1982.

It is with huge sadness that I must inform Association members of the death of Captain Mike Barrow this morning. We understand he passed away peacefully in hospital following a long battle with cancer which he endured with the patience and resolute courage that were his hallmarks as our Commanding Officer in 1982.

 I am struggling to find words to express my personal sadness and suspect you may feel the same way on receiving this news. He was a truly great man and it was both an honour and a privilege to have served with him. May he rest in peace.

 Yours aye,

 Alan.

Captain Barrow

On behalf of the Association may I welcome you to our website.   The Association has been in existence since HMS GLAMORGAN’s return to Portsmouth in 1982 and we understand we are now one of the largest Falkland Associations around.   Indeed, our membership continues to grow and we have held a series of Reunions every five years since 1982, the largest of which was in 2002.   The Association has also been involved in commissioning a GLAMORGAN memorial window in Portsmouth Cathedral and lending support to the Falklands Memorial Chapel at Pangbourne, Berkshire.

The purpose of the website is not only to maintain a forum for members to keep in touch but also to provide information to others who may want to find out more about HMS GLAMORGAN’s participation in the Falklands Conflict.   In addition it includes a Memorial to our shipmates who did not return in 1982 and a support network for those who lost loved ones onboard and for any shipmates who have suffered long-term problems as a consequence of the ship’s activities in 1982.

Whatever your reason for visiting us we would like to thank you for your interest and hope that you find your visit worthwhile
