The days leading up to the New Year of 1918 was particularly bad for volunteers from the Cambrian Railways. December 28th 2017 marked the centenary of the death of Cambrian Railways Volunteer Samuel Vaughan who died of his injuries following action on the Western Front, he was buried by his colleagues but the grave was subsequently lost and he is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial. On the 30th December, John Hugh Dyas was killed in the Middle East and is buried in Egypt. Finally, on 31st December, Evan Richard Evans was killed on the Western Front and is buried at Rouen, France. Their deaths will be commemorated with entries in our memorial book and with the laying of ceramic poppies. See here for details of the entries in our book.
