My brother Joseph (Joe) Donnelly served on the Yarmouth during the Falklands war - I believe he worked with radar and helicopter control. I don't know when he joined or left the ship but he was onboard for several years. Sadly Joe died on the 18th of January - he had great affection for the ship and the serious mates he had.

Sorry to hear the news about Joe Donnelly passing away. I served with Joe onboard during the Falklands. We had some good laughs and runs ashore. Good memories. My thoughts are with his family & friends.

I have no doubt I am not the only to reply to this sad news. I remember Joe, and if I am right he would only be about 50. I hope the messages you receive from us all will help his family and give them support. May he Rest in Peace.

Served with Joe during the Falklands and he was going to be my best man on return from the Falklands.  However he had other family engagements, please pass on my deepest sympathy to Joe's family.
