Allan Charles Wilmot’s Memoirs are a must read, as they contain a summary of his life in 1920s Kingston, Jamaica and his volunteering in 1941 for service in the Royal Navy during WWII. He resigned from RN in 1943 and volunteered for service in the Royal Air Force’s air-sea rescue unit. After WWII ended in 1945, Allan was demobbed in 1946 to Jamaica, but after a year on the island he was back in London, England. There he had a number of jobs before joining a male singing quartet (The Southlanders) that dominated the music scene in Britain and Europe during the 1950s and 1960s.
