Captain William Richards’ sister Jane, b.1850, married canal cutter Evan Jenkins, and one of their sons, John Richard Jenkins, and his wife Elizabeth, produced two mariner sons, Thomas “Tommy” Richard Jenkins and John Llewelyn “Llew” Jenkins. Whilst Tommy was serving as Chief Steward on the Lylepark in the Indian Ocean during World War Two, the ship was torpedoed by a German submarine. The survivors, including Tommy, were handed over to the Japanese and spent the rest of the war in a prison camp…a grim incarceration. The authorities knew nothing of his fate and he was named a war casualty and his wife Edith, received an official death notice from the King. A few years later, having met a prospective husband, with wedding banns being announced, lo and behold "Lazarus" like, Tommy was pronounced alive and on his way home. He was given a rapturous welcome by the villagers who went to meet him at the station. Wedding plans were hastily cancelled and he and Edith resumed their marriage living at Gordon Villa. Tommy became a postman until his retirement. Tommy’s brother John Llewelyn “Llew”, was at sea all his life as a cook, and served on the Clunepark, Broompark, Empire Star, Empire Highway and the Mahia. In 1946 the Mahia was in Australia for a time with a skeleton crew, but Llew decided to move ashore to St Kilda, Melbourne and was posted as a deserter .
