Robert H Evans killed 24 July 1917 Ypres
« on: Sunday 13 May 18 20:12 BST (UK) »
I have a photo of someone I think may be Robert Hugh Evans who was killed 24 July 1917 Ypres.

He was born 1886 in Caernfonshire North Wales.

Can anyone find a record of his death and confirm his regt?

Thanks

I also have this photo from the family collection which I thought might be her cousin Sgt Evans.
