William Eversden Weaving was born in 1921, the son of William and Ethel Weaving. He joined the staff of Westminster Bank in 1938, but on the outbreak of war in September 1939 left his job at the bank’s London Lombard Street office to go on war service.
By 1943 he was a Sergeant in the Parachute Regiment of the Army Air Corps. He was killed in action in North Africa on 9 March 1943. He was 21 years old. His platoon officer, writing to Mr and Mrs Weaving about their son, remarked that 'He was the most patriotic man I have ever known and did his job as such. The Platoon adored and respected him as a fine man. I did the same.'
William Weaving is commemorated on a bank war memorial at NatWest City of London office.
