Death of a soldier: a mother's story

Margaret Evison

On 12 May 2009 Margaret Evison’s, son Lieutenant Mark Evison of the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, died of wounds sustained whilst leading a patrol in Helmand Province. Hailed a hero, Marks death was a national sacrifice, his grave to be one of many in the identical, ordered rows in a military cemetery. But to his mother it was the most intimate of griefs. In Death of a soldier, she attempts to reconcile her own unanswerable sense of loss with the idea that her son died for a good cause.
