Jack "Coogie" Evans is on the left.
The photograph shows Jack Evans, "Coogie" with a friend walking at the Lido, Italy.
The gentleman who he is pictured with was a close friend and Coogie was the best-man at his wedding held at San Giorgio Maggiore church. The church is on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore - located across the water from the Piazzetta San Marco in Venice.
They both served in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers (REME) based in Italy from 1945 - 1948.
I, Becky Barugh (of the BBC Radio Shropshire Action Desk) have added this photograph to the BBC People's War site on my own behalf. I fully understand the site's terms and conditions.
