Notes for Captain David Dewsberry Evans
David Dewsberry trained at Sandhurst and was the holder of a commission in the Royal Artillery. In 1960 he had been sent to Aden to assist local forces who sought help in dealing with large numbers of terrorists who were ensconced on the local hills when he was shot defending one of his own men. A plaque to his memory was put up in his father's church at Long Bredy in Dorset.
