Guest GemmaH Posted 27 October , 2013 Share Posted 27 October , 2013 Remembering my husband's Great Grandfather, Private Thomas Cookson of the 1/4th Battalion, Loyal North Lancs Regiment, who died aged 40 on 27th October, 1918, in a field hospital at Boulogne, three days after being injured in combat in Belgium. Thomas is buried at Terlincthun Cemetery, Wimille. Thomas left behind a wife and four daughters. Pte Cookson's widow, Elizabeth, at the official opening of Terlincthun British Cemetery. Picture supplied by Andrew at Skylark Battlefield Tours, who was fantastically forthcoming with all he knew about Pte Cookson when I found this photograph by chance, on his website.
