As you guys know there are some guys that you keep in contact with after you leave the service , myself and my wife have at least a dozen or so friends that are more like family that mates from our army days . So over the last couple of years Alwyn Evans health has been failing through illness and 3/4 weeks ago He had a fall breaking His hip . The doctors decided to operate and as you might know the older you get there are problems with anaesthetics,Alwyn I'm sorry to say is one of those cases He hasn't come out of the anaesthetic. Talking to Dei his wife tonight it seems He is in a coma and not long for this world through other medical problems . I decided to give you all a heads up on Alwyns condition, my family is devastated by this news as is His wife Dei son Glen and daughter Heidi and the grandchildren .

Really sad news Bob, I remember Akwyn well, great guy, when we were in Osnabrueck I recall he had a dog a big sheep dog thing I think, he was always talking about it. One of life's good guys not a bad bone in his body. Sad.

So sorry to hear about Alwyn but here's hoping he can pull through OK. I've got my fingers crossed for him, and for his family too. John (JKW)

Further to my last post I contacted HHQ and informed they of Alwyns passing they didn't have Him on their records . They suggested I contact Dick Hill as he is a hive of information on us " old Carbs"  hopefully Dick can help HHQ amend their records as Alwyn for whatever reason never did any reunions. Something I've just thought ,if any one reading this post and lives in the North Wales can be of assistance,as I'm leaving the family grief for a few days before I phone .
