13804 Private Thomas W. Wilson
Wilson_TW_13408.jpg

C Company
11th Border Regiment
This is a photo of Private T.W. Wilson.  son of Mrs Wilson Woodbine House,
Patterdale and late of Liscow Troutbeck,
who, as we officially recorded last week has been  posted missing since 18th November.

Thomas Wilson appears to have survived the war, presumably as a P.O.W.
and returned to his loved ones.
