She met Sgt Henry William Street who was a Compass Adjuster at Coningsby. and they were married at Lincoln Cathedral on Evangeline's Birthday on 1st May 1945 or 1946. Sgt Street had been hoping to become aircrew, but unfortunately his sight was not up to scratch for flying duties
Evangeline (or "Paddy") was a cook in the airmens' mess and she must have served Des Evans (our former Webmaster)on a number of occasions.

Madge John (nee Toyne)
This is a photo of Madge John (nee Toyne) who worked in the NAAFI at Coningsby 1944/45. We have been fortunate in tracing Madge with the help of Karen Barker to whom we are deeply indebted. It was Karen's usual persistence which paid off.
