Thomas Henry Mace, to give him his full Sunday-best name, was born in 1898 in Mildenhall, Suffolk, fourth of the five children of Charles & Mary Ann (nee Fuller). He grew up, along with parents and siblings, in Turnpike Road, Barton Mills and enlisted in the Suffolk Yeomanry.
He was transferred to the 5th Suffolks and was killed in action in Palestine one hundred years ago today. He is buried in the Jerusalem War Cemetery in present-day Israel.
We will remember them.
