The Welsh Connection – still trying to make contact with closest remaining relatives of Thomas Charles Edward Evans, Arthur Tysilis Jones and John Samuel O’Sullivan . . .

July 6, 2010

The South Wales Echo ran a story last October. The relatives of several other soldiers have been found as a result of similar local publicity. Bargoed library did a pretty thorough search and came up with nothing.  Welsh radio and newspapers gave good coverage of the story, mentioning the three Welsh boys lost on 7th July 1940.
