Gary,

As Littlehand mentions above the only iSandlwana survivor named Evans was a member of No 1 Squadron, Mounted Infantry. However, I have him as a Private 45th Brigade/726, rather than Corporal, in 2nd Battalion, 3rd (East Kent) Regiment "The Buffs".

No details of any wounds, I'm afraid.

Where are you now?

To be precise:

45/726 Private Edward EVANS 2nd battalion, 3rd Regiment attached to 1st Squadron Imperial Mounted Infantry

(A) A letter almost certainly in English was sent home to his mother and brother in Llawryglyn near Llanidloes, Montgomeryshire, dated Helpmakaar (sic), 3rd February 1879. The original, if it still exists, has not been found. Four extracts were published: (Ai) a long extract, possibly almost complete, published in English in the Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times, 1st April 1879; (Aii) a short extract in Welsh in Y Genedl Gymreig, 10th April 1879; (Aiii) the same short extract in English the North Wales Express, 11th April 1879; (Aiv) a short extract in Welsh in Y Gwyliedydd, 17th April 1879. There are minor differences between the extracts: Evans states that he escaped with one comrade in the Welsh version (Aii) and with two comrades in the two English versions (Ai and Aiii) and the other Welsh version (Aiv), though according to Colonel Bray, Evans “was ordered with two others to ride as hard as he could to Rorke’s Drift to give the alarm". He certainly arrived at Rorke’s Drift solely in the company of Private Whelan 1/13th, I.M.I. Aii was almost certainly mistranslated. In addition, the three later extracts contain a phrase not included in the earliest one. It is therefore impossible to say with any certainty which extract was the original and it is probable that all four are edited versions of the original. Named as a survivor in McToy. Named erroneously as ‘Private Edwards of the Buffs [the 3rd Regt.]’ by Colonel Bray in the Blue Books and is mentioned by several of the Rorke’s Drift defenders. Possibly mentioned by Surg.-Maj. Reynolds. See also Whybra, Julian, ‘A Brave Fugitive: An Anonymous Account of Isandhlwana’, Studies in the Zulu War 1879: I, (Billericay, 2012), pp. 68 & 72 fn. 19.
Escaped via Fugitives’ Drift to Sand Spruit, thence to Rorke’s Drift, and to Helpmekaar(?).
