A submariner’s correspondence during World War II
The inspiration for this website came from twenty letters in an old trunk. Dating from World War ll, they came to light after the death of Evelyn Roy in 2007. Margaret Roy’s research recounts how Evelyn, also known as Jim, and Hugh Whyte, a submariner, came to correspond. With the help of Evelyn’s meticulous archive of memorabilia and journals, a picture emerges of life on the home front on Merseyside and in a theatre of war at sea.
