Alfred Victor Bond (1926- ) - son of Joseph Frederick Bond (1884 -1967) - son of James Bond (1834-1909) - son of James Bond (1781-about 1855) - son of John Bond (1734-1823) - son of Edmund Bond (about 1700-1769)
Alfred joined the Sea Cadet Corps and then volunteered for the Royal Navy under the “Bounty” scheme, finally entering at just over 17 in August 1943. He served on the Nairana, which was an escort Carrier, based at Greenock and Scarpa Flow. The ship was engaged in submarine hunts, convoys to Gibraltar, strikes against Norwegian coastal installations and 3 convoys to Russia. After the end of the war he was drafted to H.M.S. Paoua based in Londonderry, and after a spell in the Admiralty in London was finally demobbed in Jan 1947.
After the war he joined the Inland Revenue, and became a Tax Inspector. As a young man he was a keen sportsman, playing cricket and football. Like the rest of the family, he would watch Chelsea FC on a Saturday. The author, as a young boy of about 10, once walked away from the ground with his Uncle Alf, both in deep despair over the dull performance we had just witnessed. “What a pedestrian performance” muttered Alf. This is probably the first expression to make an impression on me and it is one that I still use today. Thanks Al.
For several years (around
1950) Al lived with my family in Harrow, and played football every Sunday
with us at the local park.
