Hello - I have been able to confirm Sjt.Evans died 16/11/18 but am struggling to find further information - I presume he died of disease but am anxious to confirm this or that he died of wounds possibly??

 

Can anyone help please?

 

Many thanks

Mate,

 

Sorry for the late reply.

 

I shown him as;

 

Evans    John Edward    50512    Sgt    Tos 6Co 5-16 ICC died 16-11-18 possibly illness buried Alexandria (Hadra) War Memorial Cemetery Egypt Ex 1/1 Shropshire Yeo (1346) and Corps of Hussars age 28
 

The 6th Company at that time was in the western desert, here is what I record;

 

21-9-17   6Co left Kantara to relieve 10Co at Sollum (4 officers 165 men)

 

1-18  6Co under Capt Houghton (Lt's Brook - Burton) - at Sollum patrols to Sebil and post at Sanet Essebil

 

Oct 1918

 10-18    Possibly 9Co and 10Co disbanded around this date (TBC?)

10-18    6Co sent 60 men to capture Sidi Achmed Chief of the Senussi

10-18    Lt Heath 10Co and Lt Brook 6Co to 6Co at Sollum

3-10-18   8Co (5 officers 171 men 220 camels) Capt Beech replaced Lt Huth 8Co moved from Canal via Surafend to Tul Keram arrived 14-10-18

6-10-18   5Co arrived at Jerusalem

20-10-18  7Co shown on the Canal

28-10-18  LtCol Buxton to inspect 5Co & 8Co at Tul Keram

 

Nov 1918

 1-11-18  shown 2Bn ICC 5Co & 8Co at Tul Keram 6Co at Sollum 7Co at Port Said & Ferry Post

8-11-18  5Co moved to El Afule

 

From what can can find he died from illness while in hosp in Alexandia, after being sent there from Sollum late Oct or early Nov 1918

 

From what I understand he was one of the first Shropshire men to arrive at the newly forming 6th Company in May 1916 at Abbassia under Lt Pettit;
