Kearney, Thomas Edward
Born 15th October 1897 Richmond Tasmania to Thomas George and Adeline Elizabeth Kearny (nee Barwick) he was a miner when he enlisted.
He was first reported missing but a Red Cross report tells us
“I saw him lying dead from a machine gun bullet on my return from a charge at Bapaume. He was probably killed instantly but was not disfigured. I helped to bury him and a cross was put over his grave.”
Witness L. C. Flint 6099
He was killed in action 8th April 1917
