Thomas was a cabinetmaker and upholsterer who served his apprenticeship in Dumfries. He came to Lockerbie after he left the army in 1919 and set up his own business in the High Street in 1926.
He had served in the South African War with the Galloway Volunteers and he joined the Territorial 5th KOSB in April 1908. He was mobilised in August 1914 and landed with the 1/5th Battalion at Gallipoli as Sergeant (2051) in June 1915. He later served in Egypt and in Palestine, where he was wounded at Gaza, before the battalion moved to France in April 1918.
As Company Sergeant Major (240593) Acting Regimental Sergeant Major T. C. Graham, I/5th Bn. KOSB T.F. (Maxwelltown) he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. The citation reads:
“From 25th February to 17th September, 1918, he has continuously shown cool courage and devotion to duty when under fire. In the woods in front of Parcy Tigny in July, 1918, when his battalion were under heavy shell fire, his example and personality did much to keep his company in good spirits. He was severely wounded on the morning of 28th July at the action of Beugneux.”
(Award, London Gazette 31/12/1918 p.40 – Citation, LG 2/9/1919 p.11121)

Because of his wounds Thomas was discharged from the army in May 1919 and he was awarded a Silver War Badge (No. B233797) He was 40 years old.

With the formation of the Home Guard in WW2 he became a Second Lieutenant and rose to the rank of Major. He became ill during a “Wings for Victory” parade in Lockerbie and died a few hour later.
