Correctly named 26956 Pte T Robinson Lanc Fus
Thomas hailed from the Salford area.
He served with the 3/5th Bn Lancashire Fusiliers and was with them as they moved up to for the Third Battle of Ypres or Passchendaele.
He served with D Company and on the 17th of November 1917, they had just relieved the 2/8th Bn at the front line.They themselves were relieved by the 2/10th Bn Manchester Regiment 2 days later and moved to the Canal Dugouts.
A wound report dated 23/11/1917 shows him to be contused due to being buried. Diaries confirm heavy German shelling over the 18/19th of November 1917 prior to their move and given that the wound reports are normally a few days out, one can presume it is from this incident that Thomas received his wounds.
He also held the number 204453 in the Lancashire Fusiliers.
He is entitled to a Pair.
The medal has a length of original silk ribbon.
