This Private Evans was easily identified due to his Huthwaite birth place. But war records offer little detail regarding his personal life before enlisting for duty with the Foresters at Sutton-in-Ashfield. Local press reportage adds fact that Thomas remained single while formerly employed as a clerk at the New Hucknall Colliery. A younger brother may have survived the war, although listed names of three other Evans does include two brothers known to be cousins of Thomas through close parental relations.
