I found this website today and wanted to post something on it in memory of my grandad, Thomas Henry Evans, who died on Friday 8 July in Auckland, NZ, aged 89 years, and who had been a member of the Highland Light Infantry.  I am not sure much about his time with HLI, other than that he served in the Middle East and his Army Number was: 5391864.  I am going to miss him so much.

Dear Kerrie,

we remembered your Grandad along with all of his HLI comrades yesterday at our Armistice Service and will honour his memory again tomorrow at our Remembrance Parade and Services in Glasgow and around the civilised world.

Best wishes,

Jim.

My sincere condolences, it’s a sad fact of life that the guys with the most stories to tell are now sadly passing away.
