2980 Pte Thomas Corbett

Postby sasplin » Thu Sep 06, 2012 9:30 pm

Pte Corbett served with the 8th battalion the Worcester Regiment. His MIC shows that he was discharged due to wounds in April 1917. I cannot find any service records but wondered if there was any record of his wounding in the war diaries.

Any help on finding more information on Pte Corbett would be much appreciated.
