Mon histoire

On 16 August 1917, the 9th Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers came under heavy enemy fire. They reached Gallipoli and Hill 35 but the positions were impossible to hold. Due to German counter attacks they had to fall back to their starting position. Thomas was wounded during this attack, he had a gunshot wound to the throat. The 9th Battalion left the line on 17 September and moved to Vlamertinge. Captain Shillington was taken back to the N°3 Australian Casualty Clearing Station in Brandhoek (a hamlet of Vlamertinge), where he died of his wounds on 18 September.
