Albert Evans was born in Cheshire, England in May, 1889 [his attestation papers give his date of birth as 1899, but it would be likely that the actual date was 1889, as he lists his age as 26 in 1916 at the time of his enlistment. However the Commonwealth War Graves Commission list his age as 29 at the time of his death in 1917]. Evans came to Canada sometime prior to the war and enlisted in Alberta in February, 1916. He served overseas with the 50th Battalion (Alberta Regiment) and died in September, 1917. The collection consists of one letter to his sister from 1917.
