    <<......The Type 45 destroyer which is affiliated with the city of Coventry, was presented with a cross of nails created from the remains of Coventry Cathedral after it was bombed during the Second World War.

    The cross was originally given to HMS Coventry and sank with her after Argentine aircraft attacked on May 25, 1982, killing 19 men.

    It was later recovered by divers sent to the shipwreck.

    Captain David Hart-Dyke, who was Coventry’s commanding officer during the Falklands, handed the cross over to Diamond yesterday.....>>
