Pte. John Thomas Evans 1st Btn. South Staffordshire Regiment (d.13th May 1917)

My Great Uncle, Jack Evan, was killed in action on 13th May 1917 aged 24 in Bullecourt, Arras whilst fighting with the 1st South Staffordshire Regiment.

In 1916 he enlisted with the Royal Army Ordnance Core as Pte 017831 prior to enlisting with the 1st South Staffordshire Regiment. On May 13th 1917 his regiment was ordered to attack the heavily fortified village of Bullecourt along with the Australians. The village was believed to have been weakened by days of heavy bombardment, unfortunately this was not the case & the battle was vicious & costly as these gallant men were caught in a bloody crossfire at a location known as the Red Patch. After three days Bullecourt was taken with the loss of two Officers & 37 men killed.

He is commemorated on Bay 6 of the Arras Memorial in the Pas De Calais Cemetery on the Boulevard du General de Gaulle on the South of the road to Doullens. He is also commemorated on two memorials locally. The cross in Tremeirchion & the memorial hall in Caerwys.

Pte. Alfred John Lightfoot Cheshire Regiment Royal Army Ordnance Corps

Alfred Lightfoot was my husband's father. He is known to have fought in France but unfortunately his war record cannot be found. It was probably one of the many which were destroyed. He said very little about his experience but it is believed he was gassed and hospitalised in Rouen. He survived the war.
