Vaughan, Evan James Stanley

Captain Evan J. S. Vaughan, Middlesex Regiment (late of the Buffs), who fell on August 18, was the elder son of Herbert Stanley Vaughan (Admiralty Store Officer) and Mrs. H. Vaughan of Gibraltar. His younger brother is serving in H.M.S. Challenger. He was educated at Dulwich College, joined the O.T.C. and later the Yeomanry. He was working in Japan for the shipping firm of Dodwell and Co. when war broke out, but threw up his post to come home and take a commission in The Buffs. Later he was gazetted captain in the Middlesex Regiment. It is reported of him that "he died gallantly leading his men into action. He was one of the most reliable of the company's commanders."
