Tom Hart.

Photograph of Tom Hart in uniform.

It is thought that Tom also served in the HCB and further investigations are ongoing to find out more about this man.

This photograph was in the family collection - none of the men are named or known.
His brother Charles Hart also served in the Hunts. Cycles.

Many thanks to Guy Hetherington for providing the family background and photos of this soldier. Tom was his grandfather.

Guy writes - 'Tom and Charles were both born in Hemingford Abbots, and as far as I am aware both enlisted in the Hunts Cyclist Battalion. According to my grandmother and stories told to me when I was a small boy, during the war my grandfather was wounded [possibly 1916]  He was wounded whilst fighting alongside his brother Charles.  Charles was sent back to Scarborough to recover, where he met my grandmother. My grandfather, although surviving the war never really fully recovered from his wounds, and sadly Tom was killed on the 21st March 1918 whilst attached to the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers'.

This is a previously unknown soldier - recently added to the site.
