Remembering Today Captain Rees Tudor Evans and his brother Sec.Lieut. Richard Stanley Evans of the 5th Bn Welsh Regt., who were both reported wounded and missing following the action to take Anafarta Ova, Suvla. They were both subsequently taken as having been killed in action during the advance of 10th Aug.1915. They were the sons of the late Mr William Evans, of Brynteg, Merthyr Tydfil, general manager for Messrs Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds Ltd.

Captain Rees Tudor Evans was educated at Shrewsbury School and Magdalen College, Oxford. He is commemorated on the Helles Memorial and was aged 26.

Sec.Lieut. Richard Stanley Evans was educated at Shrewsbury School and Hertford College, Oxford. He is also commemorated on the Helles Memorial and was aged 23.

From the South Wales Echo of 20th September, 1915:

"---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."

RIP :poppy: :poppy:
