Sgt Arthur Evans
Birth: Apr. 8, 1891
Death: Nov. 1, 1926

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Liverpool, England, he served as a Sergeant in the Lincolnshire Regiment, British Army. On September 2, 1918, near Etaing, France, a British patrol on the west bank of a river sighted a German machine-gun on the east bank. The river being very deep, Sergeant Evans volunteered to swim across and crawled up behind the machine-gun post, where he shot two sentries and made four more surrender. After a crossing had been found an officer and one man joined him, when a enemy machine-gun and rifle fire opened on them. The officer was wounded and Sergeant Evans covered his withdrawal under very heavy fire. For most prestigious gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
