His last letter home. Although the letter is now kept in a green Active Service envelope, the envelope bears a postmark of 1918 and was printed in September 1917, so presumably was supplied later by John Evans, the addressee.

Trooper 1526 Evan Richard Jones, Household Battalion, was killed in action 3rd May 1917 aged 29. The son of Thomas and Elizabeth Jones, of "Gwyndy" 1, Hawarden Rd., Colwyn Bay, he is commemorated on the Arras Memorial.
