Biography contributed by Evan Evans

From Gary Mitchell, Sandgate Cemetery

105 years ago today, on the Sunday evening of the 19th December 1915, the Kurri Kurri Congregational Church Roll of Honour was unveiled.
18 names had been inscribed of those from the congregation who had enlisted with the 1st A.I.F., mentioning that Lance Corporal David Evans, 1st Australian Light Horse Regiment, had fallen on the 14th May 1915 at Quinn’s Post during the Gallipoli Campaign.
We can assume that additional names had been inscribed throughout the years of The Great War.
