Meredith Small with such credentials I am amazed that I have no recollection of having heard of him before... Is his statue in Whitehall? That's the only think that's tugging at my mind...

Kathy Pinna Meredith - I don't know much about Lt. General Evans - just what I read. You'll notice that the photo is from the United States Library of Congress and he isn't part of my family history. I just thought it was an interesting photo and a fascinating story!
