A letter from Lieutenant HP Bagge said Tom had been mortally wounded and had died at 7.30 pm. He said that he was always a good soldier, always did his duty and was very popular with all his comrades and all who had anything to do with him. He was buried close to where he had fallen and he has no marked grave.
