From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 14th March 1941:

    The gunners who gave a splendid account of themselves in the recent attack on their trawlers were Mr. Arthur (Toddy) Evans, and Mr. Frank Hawkins.  Mr. Evans, who has four brothers in the Services, lives at Pembroke Dock, his wife, before marriage being Miss Lilian Smith, Gwyther Street.  He is a son of Mrs. Evans, Brooke Avenue, Milford.  Hawkins, who is also in his 30s, is married, and lives at Shakespeare Avenue.

[ Mr. Evans was aboard the GRACKLE, and Mr. Hawkins was on the P & Y. ]
