This soldier is one of two former pupils of Bury Grammar School buried at Christ Church, Walshaw. I know a lot about the other, Sergeant/Pilot Edgar Widdows, who was killed in an accident at RAF Chivenor as his aircraft returned from an anti-submarine patrol over the Bay of Biscay. However, I have drawn a blank with Trooper Thomas Leigh. I was under the impression that I had posted about him several years ago on this Forum but could not find anything on the Search facility. As I recall, the information provided then indicated that he had been discharged from the army several months before his death. His burial is recorded on the CWGC database, although like many buried in family plots at home, he has a non-standard headstone. I have come across similar cases from the Great War, including two old boys of our school, who died after being medically discharged but are not given CWGC recognition. One, ex-Lieutenant Harold Ashworth Shaw, Royal Engineers, died only a few weeks after discharge and was a given a funeral with full military honours in another local churchyard. Did the War Graves Commission change its criteria for inclusion between the wars or were there inconsistencies in treatment depending on e.g. notification by families?
