If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of hosting this website to keep it alive would be very much appreciated.

Thankyou from Gravesites of Tasmania in advance.

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
