Long Description:

Memorial plaque in St Andrew's church, Swavesey, to Paul T Mills, killed in the Falklands Conflict 1982.

Inscription -

1982
(Name) Falklands Campaign

"He was on H.M.S. Coventry as a PO marine engineering mechanician. He was in the engine room when it was hit by a thousand pound bomb. He mentioned later that he got a 'knock on the head'. Unfortunately this knock had caused a fracture of his skull that remained sadly undiagnosed for several months. Later that year he fell unconscious a couple of times, the ensuing medical investigation revealed a brain tumour. The rate of growth indicated that the cause was the fracture. He was operated on, but only to buy him a few more months. He died on the 29th March 1983."
