    Leonard Sydney Evans' baptism on August 9th 1908 is on FMP, and his parents are indeed Frederick William and Minnie Evans. Their address in 1908 is 12 Dacre House, Beaufort Street, Chelsea.

    Date of birth given as May 20th 1908. His R.A.F. record on FMP has a hand-written note "College Cranwell. Died 29 Nov 37" which may be where the confusion with his brother began?

    His civilian occupation is given as Fishmonger.

    Simon thanks

    I am sure what happened is that Kenneth William Evans actually enlisted using his brothers info and even married and died under the wrong name.................

    For someone born in 1 Aug 1911 he would could not enlist 6 Jul 1927 he would have been 15.. easier to use his older brothers name and be 18 years.....

    That is why all confusion - I have amended my record of Kenneth William Evans to be 506246 and served as 'Leonard Sydney Evans'

    PS there was a third brother
