1962 Elder Marvin Adamson 

My name is Marv Adamson. I served in Taunton in what was then the Southwest British Mission, from March 1962 to July 1962 with Elder Scott Romney. Taunton was my first assignment as a missionary and I coiuldn’t have asked for a better senior companion. I was brand new, just off the plane, and had been interviewed to go on a mission by the man who has been my Stake President in Holladay, Utah and was now my Mission President , Ray Curtis.  
Elder Romney and I both moved to Yeovil in June 1962 and Taunton was left without a missionary team.  
When missionaries moved back into Taunton  
I don’t recall, but it wouldn’t have been too long after that. 
My first memories of Taunton are of the natural beauty of the Somerset countryside. We held meetings in a rented hall and Pyeoften only had three or four people attending. I remember baptising a Sister Pye and her two sons Steven and Barry. Sister also had another son Eddy.  
I have attached a photo of us together outside the Rylands home. These people are Sister Pye, a girl I don’t remember, the Rylands, their son Christopher and two boys, I don't remember, though the one on the left is probably a Pye and the other one on the right is probably a Ryland. 
I have an address for Sister Pye 124 Galmington Road, Taunton. But its 50 years old. We lived on Albemarle Road with a Mrs Annan, who took very good care of us. I have been back to Taunton twice since 1962, and always stop at the Tudor Tavern for a steak and chips. 
Thank you for your work on this. You’re making me go through files and memories that are covered with cobwebs, literally and figurativly
