Biographical Notes

Harold Evans, born at Timaru, enlisted with the Australian Imperial Force on 6 March 1916 at Melbourne, Victoria. He was 24 years 10 months old, an engineer and single. He gave no next-of-kin, a note attached that his parents’ whereabouts were unknown.

No. 26102 Pte EVANS Harold, 16th Depot Battalion, Bendigo - Declared a deserter and struck off strength, 20 June 1916. “This man has not yet been accounted for.” He had been absent since 28 May 1916. Was Harold Evans an assumed name? Or, is this same man as Harold Thomas EVANS, 1229AUS? There are some parallels – age, occupation.
