  • Thomas Broadbridge was the son of George Howard and Lilian Mary Broadbridge, of Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand.

    His army record records his birth date as 5 April 1889. His birth certificate states 5 April 1891 as his birth date.

    "15 September Thomas Broadbridge received gunshot wounds to his left thigh. This happened on the first day of the Flers-Courcelette Battle on the Somme (15-22 September) when his Battalion's task was to capture a sector of the Flers Trench System, then to take Flers village. After a period in France receiving medical attention, he was transferred to England, and arrived at No.1 New Zealand General Hospital on 27 September."(Church, p.87)

  • Thomas Cyril Broadbridge was my Husband Leon's Great Uncle. Thomas was engaged before he went to war, to my Great Aunt Esther Yarrow of Wanganui. I have a photo given to me by her of Thomas in his army uniform. We have his birth certificate which shows his birth date 5 April 1891 (not 1892). Regards Varley Broadbridge
