Commander Dai Evans RIP

Commander Dai Evans

”What I’m looking for in a potential commanding officer is somebody with professional competence and professional honesty. What I’m also looking for is someone who has the ability to motivate 70 men. You can be very good, as an individual, at moving a submarine from A to B, you can handle it dived quite competently, but unless you can actually take 70 men with you and have them work for you, and have them enjoy it, then you really don’t have the qualities that are necessary to command.”

The XO Confirmed the date and time for Dai's funeral service. There is no plan to hold a remembrance service.

The Funeral Service for Commander DLP (Dai) Evans will take place on 28 December at 1330 at St John the Baptist (CofE) Church, Church Road
, Ashley, Market Drayton, TF9 4LQ. Refreshments will be available afterwards at the Peel Arms, also on Church Road, Ashley.

Submariners’ Prayer

O Father hear our prayer to Thee From your humble servants beneath the sea: In the depths of ocean oft we stray, So far from night, so far from day; We would ask your guiding light to glow To make our journey safe below. Please oft times grant us patient mind, Then ‘ere the darkness, won’t us blind. We seek thy protection from the deep And grant us peace whene’er we sleep. Of our homes and loved ones far away We ask you care for them each day, Until we surface once again, to drink the air and feel the rain. We ask your guiding hand to show A safe progression, sure and slow. Dear Lord please hear our prayer to Thee From your humble servants beneath the sea. Amen
