It is my sad duty to tell you all, that Paul 'CORP' Evans passed away a short time ago.
Paul had been admitted under sedation, into The Theresa's Hispice in Darlington earlier, but never regained consciousness.
Paul's wife Dot just phoned me with the sad news. I have already passed on condolences to Dot, on behalf of the group, and she will let me know of the arrangements, when they have been arranged.
Paul, for those who didn't know was Donald's radio communications officer during the last attempt at Coniston, and was therefore the last person to speak to him brfor making that fatefull last run. He had lived those last moments ever since, and only comparitively recent, has been able to talk about it. Perhaps now, like Leo Ken and Lew will find the answer to the questions he has been asking for all those years.
Rest easy my friend, rest easy.
