Percival William Beaver
deceased 30 Jan 2015
Over the next 11 years Percy would serve on two other ships, HMS Howe and HMS Norfolk. On HMS Howe Percy had some extra jobs to do, one of them being a gun phone operator where he would give the gunners instructions as when to load the guns.
HMS Norfolk was his favourite. This was the only ship where he was involved in night watches. It was 4 hours on, 4 hours off. He travelled to the Far East after the war waving the Victory flag. He travelled from Plymouth to Ceylon where there was a naval base. He then travelled through the Persian Gulf, the Seychelles and Singapore and finally returned in 1949.
