This fonds consists of 45 pieces of correspondence written by Walter A. Evans to Eva May Fleet, between 1915 and 1919, while he was serving overseas with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during World War I. It documents his activities as a soldier, conditions in the trenches, and his experiences on the battlefield. As well, the letters provide insights into the relationship developing between Eva and Walter that culminated in their marriage in 1921.

Walter Evans describes the Front as a God-forsaken place, and comments on the mud, damp, and cold. He notes bombing raids; the deaths of men, mules, and horses; and the need for more men at the Front. In particular, he discuss his role in the Battle of Passchendaele, what he saw on the battlefield (10 December 1917), and mentions the boys from home, particularly his brother, Alder, whom he meets overseas. As well, he notes his activities on leave, his training period in England, and the need for conscription. His last 5 letters (24 November 1918 to 27 April 1919) discuss his desire to return home, his attempts to make this a reality, and his hope that Eva will agree to marry him.
