Thomas Gerard Vose
1919 - 1970
11th March 1919
31st May 1970
Tom was a 'desert rat' in the second world war. He wrote home of seeing the cream of German youth lying dead in the desert, and I believe that terrible experience was to stay with him through the rest of his life.
He was with the troops who fought their way up through Italy and into France, and survived the war but died relatively young. His letters, descriptive but forthright letters of a soldier at war, were too salty for his sister, Theresa, who destroyed them.
Buried with his parents in St. Marys, Little Crosby.
