Thomas Alfred Sanders
Thomas Alfred Sanders was my grandfather Frank's brother. They were from a family of twelve and lived in Temuka, although several of the family moved north to Hamilton pre First World War. He has always been remembered by each generation of the family with affection.
His brother Joseph Albert was also involved and returned with a leg wound, which like for many others, never healed.
I am in the process of putting together the family story so any assistance from other members would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather was his brother. The 3 boys enlisted together. His name was frank William sanders but he couldn't go overseas because he had a club foot. He stayed here in nz. His brother Joseph albert sanders went overseas with him. He was wounded at the somme where tom was killed. It is believed one or other of them was wounded at gallipol.
