Thomas Arthur died from gunshot wound to his back and abdomen.

 

 

I had a message from Gary and Frances Rush saying that they had visited Frances great uncle Thomas's grave when they were here on a visit a few years ago.

"He was born in a tiny town called Deptford about two and half hours drive from Melbourne . His service no.was 1865a, he enlisted 14/1/1916 and died at the hospital 16/9/1916 .

As you can see from that he had such a short time in the army when you
consider his battalion the 46th arrived in Europe in the first week of June
that year. Also I should add that he was 19 yrs and 1 month old when he
enlisted so under 20 when he died."
 
Gary went on to say that he thinks that they are the only relatives ever to visit his grave.

Studio portrait of 1865 A Private (Pte) Thomas Arthur Harding, 46th Battalion. A sleeper cutter from Deptford, Victoria prior to enlistment, Pte Harding embarked from Melbourne on HMAT Euripides on 4 April 1916. Later wounded in action, he was evacuated to England where, on 16 September 1916, aged 19, he succumbed to his wounds and was buried in the Netley Military Cemetery, Hampshire. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had a concession to take photographs at the Broadmeadows and Seymour army camps during the First World War. In the 1930s, the Australian War Memorial purchased the original glass negatives from Algernon Darge, along with the photographers' notebooks. The notebooks contain brief details, usually a surname or unit name, for each negative.

Photo made c 15th March 1916 in Broadmeadows Melbourne.
