George Thomas` fought in the Battle of the Somme. We were led to believe that the reason he enlisted was because hundreds of thousands of horses in this country were sent to France to help in the war effort. This would have made him redundant and therefore unable to support his wife and 7 children. He was shot and injured around the time of the battle for Pozieres Wood and died of his injuries on the 8th August 1916.
