Death
Note

No known grave for Thomas. His name appears on the memorial in Seine at Marne. He was obviously regular army before the war as killed within 6 weeks of war starting as a Lance Corporal, Welsh Regiment.

"The indecisive day of 14th September 1914, with attack and counterattack for minor tactical gains of ground, could be said to be the end of the phase of mobile warfare; the beginning of a static phase that lasted until March 1918. The German entrenchments along and in front of the Chemin des Dames were the first of what soon became the continuous 400-mile Western Front"

In April 2001 we stayed at a holiday park in the Soisson area, but that was before I knew of Thomas's death there, so we may well have been within metres of where he died.

On the same day, same regiment - William Charles Fuller was a Welsh recipient of the Victoria Cross, he was 30 years old, and a Lance-Corporal in the 2nd Bn., The Welch Regiment, British Army during the First World War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC. On 14 September 1914 near Chivy-sur-Aisne, France, Lance-Corporal Fuller advanced under very heavy rifle and machine-gun fire to pick up an officer who was mortally wounded, and carried him back to cover.

Both Thomas's and William's names appear on the war memorial at Crick, Northants.
