Additional Information

H. R. Thomas was part of the 4th Battalion of the South Welsh Borderers which served under the Royal Army during the First World War. The battalion was stationed in Gallipoli and engaged in various actions against the Turkish Army including the Battle of Sari Bair, the Battle of Russell’s Top and the Battle of Hill 60. In 1916, the battalion went to Egypt to defend sections of the Suez Canal and in February embarked for Mesopotamia, which is most likely where H. R. Thomas died.
