Thomas Allen

3455 PTE Thomas Andrew Allen enlisted in 1915 at the age of 43. He was allocated to 25th Battalion and was severely wounded in France in 1916. When he recovered he returned to his battalion but suffered from other illnesses which caused him to be hospitalised. In 1917 Allen was returned to Australia and discharged due to his advanced age.
This British War Medal is in great condition and court mounted ready to wear. Thanks to Jan M who is a serving RAAF member for sending this medal to me. The medal will be retuned to Allen's great great nephew. The returned medal tally is now 989.
