: IN THE SERVICE OF LORD LOUIS (subtitle) Born in Sunderland, the seventh son of a steel worker from the Rhondda Valley, William Evans' passion to see the world led him to join the Royal Navy. In 1959 he was appointed to the Royal Yacht Britannia, but after only one royal cruise he was 'poached' by Lord Mountbatten and became head of his Naval Retinue. And so began ten of the most exciting and demanding years he could ever have hoped for. His duties took him to exotic lands, to our greatest ceremonies of State and allowed him to rub shoulders with royalty, prime ministers and film stars. With barely a day off duty, Evans offers a unique glimpse of a great man who could inspire undying loyalty.
