Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

I assumed the same but Evan Jones is buried in Eddw Vale. This E. Llew. Jones is buried in Penygraig which is near Tonypandy, a fair few mills from Ebbw Vale.

Still on the subject of Evan Jones, Ebbw Vale, 
I recently seen a newspaper article from when he was rejoining the colours in WW1, and praising his longevity of service. In it he states that he also has a brother who completed 23 years service, but does not give the regiment. I was wondering if you or anyone else had seen that article.

Julian has mentioned in the past that one of the four Rorkes Drift defenders taken off Bourne's list was a jones, parhaps if Evan Jones's brother can be tied down, it may break some ice. Assuming that he served with his brother that is, and the article is correct.
I will attempt to find it again and post it here.

Hi Kate. In relation to E. Llew. Jones, I have found another article about the funeral where he receives a wreath from the Somerset Light Infantry, if that helps.

Kate.

I do not know if you noticed the above, apparently E Llew Jones was Somerset Light Infantry. For your records.

Good morning Eddie
I've had look at the 1/13th medal rolls for you.
There are 7 Jones's (6 privates and 1 corporal) but none have the initial of E.
There is a Private 36/1773 L Jones SAGS no clasp.
I've noticed in the rolls that sometimes if a person has more than one initial they will only show one of them so, clutching at straws, it could be 1773.

Kate.

That was very kind of you. There is a possibility that it could be him going by the initial "L". 

Thank you

I think you have him in the first you list in Pontypridd district Evan L Jones died 1911 as in the article. But what link to the 24th?
You mention a E Jones 2/24th no 1595, when and where did he serve I wonder?
