refer also photo in the Stratford Hall of Remembrance (situated on west side of main street between the clock tower and south roundabout) where a group photo of Stratford men in the Dardanelles is hanging. I am not 100% certain this is our Thomas featured in the photo as he embarked after the Dardanelles campaign. The photo may be incorrectly attributed to the Dardanelles area. There is no other record of a T Wallace (casualty) in WW1 from the Taranaki area, however there may be another T Wallace from the Stratford area who returned home.
A memorial to Thomas is on his parents (James and Eliza's) headstone in Inglewood Cemetery.
Thomas' name is also on the Inglewood Cenotaph; on the Roll of Honour Board in Waitoriki Hall, Lincoln Rd, Inglewood;the Roll of Honour Board in Kaimata Hall; on the plaque on the back wall of St Johns Church, Kaimata; and the Roll of Honour Board in St Andrews Anglican Church, Inglewood.
Thomas was farming in Kaimata when he enlisted.
Thomas was an older brother to my grandmother Daisy, who was listed as his next-of-kin.
