The Evans family arrived from London, England to Western Australia in December 1923 on board “Hobson”. The twins would have been aged about 4 years, with one sister and two older brothers.
Kenneth Samuel Evans is twin brother to Ronald Lumley Evans WX10057. Ronald enlisted on 13/12/1940 and Kenneth 15th October 1941. As POWs they were interned together at Selarang Camp Changi and were selected for ‘A’ Force Burma and into Green Force No. 3 Battalion.
