Swansea remembers Edgar Evans 100years after his death.

10 Nov

Edgar Evans was denigrated by many after his death, because, it was alledged, he was unable to keep pace with his companions on the fearful return and held the British party up, so causing of the deaths of the whole group.

It took years for Edgar to regain his rightful place in British Antarctic history, but now Swansea is celebrating the life of her famous son.

There is to be a service in St Mary’s Church on Friday 17th February 2012, to be followed by a conference in the Swansea Museum on the 18th.

A ‘must’ for those interested in local history and in Edgar Evans, a man who was of great credit to his country.
