Lisa, you may care to contact the Machine Gun Corps Old Comrades Association. See http://www.machineguncorps.co.uk/

Secretary is Judith Lappin : info.mgc@ntworld.com.

One member maintains a database on former servicemen, and may have something on Thomas. Alternatively, you can also contribute to the database. Every little bit helps.

Hi Ralph,

Thank you very much for that, I do have his parents names but I didn't have the place where they lived and his fathers job.

So you have really helped me.
