Remembered Today:

Thomas Lyons


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

9590 Pte Thomas Lynes DOW aged 32 on 19 July 1916 whilst serving with 11th Royal Warwickshire's and is buried in Heilly Station Cemetery, Mericourt-L'Abbe. He was the husband of Jane Lynes of 2 Court, 2 House, London Road, Coventry. He first arrived in France on 22 Aug 1914 assuming with the 1st Royal Warwickshire's as the dates match and I'm lead to believe was a pre war regular but happy to be corrected. Interestingly, he has 2 MIC's - one referring to Charles and the other to Thomas. Both have been cross referenced to each other as the roll numbers coincide. His pair (minus his 1914 Star) have the initial 'C' yet he is recorded by CWGC etc as Thomas. Rest in peace Thomas :poppy:
