Rees, 26, and Richard Evans, 23, died while serving with the 5th (Service) Battalion, the Welsh Regiment. Sons of William Evans of Brynteg, Merthyr Tydfil, neither of the brothers has a known grave. Both are commemorated on the Helles Memorial to the Missing. Both sons were educated at Shrewsbury School and Oxford, where Tudor gained a law degree at Magdalene College and Richard studied at Hertford College. The South Wales Echo of 20 September 1915 published a letter from a wounded soldier,

describing how the brothers died: "Captain Tudor Evans also displayed those qualities which make a real hero, and though wounded he remained at his post, urging on his men, until he was shot a second time and died from his wounds. Lieutenant Stanley Evans too acted nobly he was wounded and his body was never found."

Thanks Mick, that's excellent.
