In Lieutenant Evans' Obituary, which can be found online here the text indicates that he was an Officer of The Durham Light Infantry. No mention of him has been found in the McGregor Index at Durham County Arvhives, nor is there any mention in the London Gazette of him having transferred to the DLI from the Middlesex Regiment. Further investigations will be made in case there is a confusion of identity.
