He has received erery care and attention at a Bournemouth Hospital and is now at his home in Vicar Lane on a short leave to see his parents.
Mr and Mrs Evans have three other sons serving in the Army viz., John, Walter and Thomas Alfred Shepherd. John was called up with the reserve, having been through the South African campaign, and is at present with the York and Lancasters at Salonika.
No news has been received of Walter for a considerable time. Thomas Alfred is with his regiment in Egypt.
