Of all the final resting places of the men i have visited Thomas was the one that moved me most. At the base of the gravestone was an overgrown plant, on removing this to one side i found the inscription "TADCASTER" After the war all familys could pay for a final rememberance on the gravestone of their loved one. Thomas fought with a Scottish Regiment and his parents pride that he came from Tadcaster is clear to see.
