MELVILLE H. WILSON
BORN 23RD FEBRUARY 1908
DIED 16TH JULY 2000
Melville, who got a part of his education at La Martiniere College, Lucknow aside from a couple of other schools according to his dad's postings, worked for the P&T till he retired. He made two trips to the UK, one to see his son, Darryl settled in 1955(?) and again after his wife passed away when he went permanently. However, after a short while he decided it wasn't the place for him. Though he had sold everything before leaving he returned, and was given a room in the house that he had left. He had represented the P&T in soccer having played matches abroad. He visited Lawrence Terrace twice daily for years.
