HMS Turbulent launch

Were any of you present in Barrow at the launch of HMS Turbulent and who were the VIPs that were invited?Were any members of the wartime Turbulent's company invited?

She was launched in 1982 by Lady Deborah Cassidi, the wife of Admiral Sir Desmond Cassidi, former Second Sea Lord.
Was there, the film crew was Geeing the crowd up before the launch and filming them. At the launch when she went down the slipway every one was watching in open mouthed awe and silence. On the evening news it was edited so it looked like we were cheering as she went into the water.
I know there was a chap called Sid Kay there from the wartime Turbulent,were there any others, and does anybody have any pictures from the day?
