Evan Samuel Rees' photographs from the Middle East, WW1

Evan Samuel Rees, son of John Rees and Jane Rees of Llangyfelach (then a sub-district of Swansea and Glamorgan counties) joined the army at 19 and served in the Middle East during the First World War. He served with the R.A.M.C (Royal Army Medical Corps) and travelled extensively in the Egypt and Palestine area. As with many soldiers who served in the Middle East, he saw things those at home had never experienced. What makes Evan’s story different is that he had a camera which he used to document his travels. Evan survived the War and returned to the Swansea area to work as a cabinet maker.
