Pte. Thomas was reported as missing in action on Crete on the 2nd June 1941, however he had been taken prisoner. He died whilst a prisoner of war.
 
The CWGC and Casualty Records list him by his Regiment only. His name is however recorded on the Westminster Abbey Commando ROH as being a member of Layforce and dying as a Prisoner of War.  His name is therefore held on our ROH in the hope that further information establishing, or otherwise,  any Commando service will come to light in the future.
 
Prague War Cemetery
Prague War Cemetery was constructed by the Czechoslovak Government, to plans provided by the Imperial War Graves Commission, under the terms of the War Graves Agreement of 3 March 1949. It contains 256 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 34 of which are unidentified. The graves were brought into the cemetery from 73 small cemeteries scattered all over the Czech Republic. Many of those buried here died as Prisoners of War.
