I hope someone will be able to help me, I am researching my great grandfather on my father's side - William George Evans (b. 1899).
He was born and lived in Shropshire, England until he was 10 or so, when he is recorded living in Warwickshire.
At about 16 he joined the army and fought in the Great War (I think). He stayed in the army until around 1919 as far as I am aware.
After this he was very elusive, very few records exist of him. There are, however, records showing him returning from Lagos, Nigeria and "The Gold Coast" which was Ghana and Nigeria.
He also travelled from and to New York.
I don't know what the archives are like in Nigeria and if any exist but if anyone has access to anything at all that may help me, I would be extremely grateful if you could post it here and give me an helping hand!
If it is any help, his parents were John G Evans (b. 1867) and Adela Heson (b. 1867).
Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you,
