    Default Vice-Admiral Sir Charles Evans DSO DSC (Fleet Air Arm)

    Hi guys
    Not RAF, but ... Fleet Air Arm ace Sir Charles died in Athens, Greece, in December 1981. Was he living in Greece at the time, or just visiting? I believe he is buried in Athens. Can one of our Greek friends confirm this?.
    Was there an obituary, and if so, did it mention his family?
    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Default Charles Evans

    Hi guys
    I've now established that he married a Greek lady by the name of Doulcaris in 1942. She worked for the Greek Embassy in Cairo.
    Where are Service Overseas marriages recorded? Any ideas?
    Any help appreciated, please.
    Cheers
    Brian

    Brian -- I have a 1975 Who's Who which has a detailed entry for him, if that is any use to you. It gives a London address.

    Hi Chas
    That sounds interesting. As he was Sir Charles there should of been a Lady Evans?
    Are you able to share your find?
    Cheers

    Hi Brian
    Sorry for delay. His marriage is listed as m 1942, Kyriakoula, 3rd d of Gen Doulcaris, Athens, Greece -- but it seems as though you knew that already. I can scan the entry and email it to you if you PM me your email address.

    Hi Chas
    That's great - please do let me have a scan. Much appreciated.
    Do we know if the marriage lasted?
    Who was General Doulcaris?
