Pebble Island HMS Coventry memorial service
A memorial service was held on the island in 2007 to commemorate the loss of HMS Coventry (Picture: MOD).

During the Falklands War, it was the scene of a SAS raid on the airfield, which destroyed 11 Argentine aircraft.

It is also the place where HMS Coventry is commemorated after she was sunk off the coast of Pebble Island.
