New photograph of 3415/241062 Sergeant Samuel Henry Lomas

David Yeoman – a relative of Samuel Henry – has recently contacted me and kindly provided another picture of Samuel Henry Lomas.

Tideswall Football Team

This is the Tideswall Football Team in which all the players had the surname of Lomas. Many thanks to David for sending this photograph and letting me share it.

Samuel’s cousin – Wilfred Lomas (sitting next to Samuel) – was killed in action near Polecappelle on the 16th December 1917 whilst serving with the 10th Battn Durham Light Infantry. Wilfred had formerly served with the Sherwood Foresters with the regimental number 69172, which would suggest that he enlisted/mobilised in Sept/Oct 1916.
