    I have the sad news that John Evans passed away at the weekend. A 'proper gent' with a wicked sense of humour he had been a member of Southampton Buccaneers since pretty much the beginning. He hadn't shot for some time due to illness but for those of us that had the pleasure of shooting with him over the years he was a much liked character. He was always helpful and had an endless repertoire of witty stories and was just a really nice bloke.

    He will be missed.

    As Rob said, a character who will be missed by those that knew him.

    RIP John - happy shooting up above.

    A great loss to all of us all and an inspiration to the younger guns.

    RIP John.

    Only met John a few times but he was a really nice guy and sure to be missed.
