Roger Evans

IN 1959, after joining the Royal Navy, I was sent to HMS Mercury, the communications training school, in Leydene, Hampshire.

IN 1959, after joining the Royal Navy, I was sent to HMS Mercury, the communications training school, in Leydene, Hampshire.

At that school was a group of deferred National Servicemen also doing their basic training.

One of these National Servicemen, Roger Evans, became a friend of mine and I did on one occasion visit Weston with him, staying at his home, for a weekend. I lost touch with Roger after we left the training school.

I know he lived in Weston and worked locally before, and after, his Naval Service. He will now be around 70 years of age.
