I've just read your page on Yarmouth's involvement in the Falklands War. It's only taken me 35 years and comes about as a result of research to help in my memoirs as contribution to a book being written by HMS Argonaut Ships company. I have a lasting impression of Yarmouth, forged on my first visit to the upper deck on the morning of 21 May. We were doing 'max chat' through a gap in the land somewhere in Falkland Sound and I remember seeing Yarmouth on our starboard side, also going like the veritable clappers but heading straight towards us, she was healing slightly as she began a turn to starboard, spray spewing forth over her bows from the slight chop, enhanced by her speed, bomb and cannon fire splashes all around and smoke belching from her 4.5 barrels as she let loose a salvo at something I know not what.
All in all, very impressive.
