    Hi Linda and welcome,
    I presume it is this Thomas James Evans P/KX103624 b.1919, Wales. He is remembered on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial, Panel 92 - he has no known grave. Death in Singapore 16 Feb 1942.

    The first thing to do if you have not already done so is to obtain his service record from the Ministry of Defence. Get a copy of military service records
