Extract from a letter written to his uncle, c. 27th July 1879

"...We lost a lot of Pontypool boys out here, at the Battle of Isandhlwana. There were Alfred Farr, Dick Treverton, George Morris, Harry Smith, Charley Long and Bill Reece (from Pontnewynydd): they all got killed. I and Charley can think ourselves lucky, for we were staying in the same camp, only we were out with the General; we left Alf Farr in the tent asleep when we went out; the reason Alf stayed in was because he was butcher for the Regiment...

...From your ever affectionate nephew,
Fred Evans 2-24th Regiment."

The full letter was published in the Pontypool Free Press and Herald of the Hills, 13th Sept. 1879

No mention of his surname....Charley is mentioned several times in the letter so we could speculate that he is a relation..a brother perhaps....there was a 25B 957 Private Charles Evans 2/24th.
Fred does also refer to his 'brother' - " Caul " who was serving with the 1st 24th in Zululand at the same time who he and Charley had met at Fort Newdigate.
