The image above, as well as the one below, are the two images on the site of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (Maidenhead, UK). The image below was sent in some time ago, as part of the Milton Soldiers Project, to highlight the grave of Private Alfred James Evans. The CWGC style military headstone lies between the left bush and the Evans family headstone. Private Evans is not commemorated as a “war dead” by the CWGC because he died of his injuries after the cut-off date of August 31, 1921. We have thus commemorated Private Evans on the CWGC site in our own special way! For further information, please see the details provided on this site under “5 Orange Cones“.
