Biography contributed by John Edwards

"...2867 Private Thomas Highmore Dimmick, 32nd Battalion. A carpenter from Brompton, South Australia, prior to enlistment, he embarked as an Acting Sergeant with the 6th Reinforcements from Adelaide on 11 April 1916 aboard HMAT Aeneas for Suez. The battalion relocated to the Western Front, France, during June 1916. In mid-October 1916 he was promoted to the substantive rank of Sergeant (Sgt) and in late October he was hospitalised with rheumatism and myalgia for four months before rejoining his battalion near Albert, France. Sgt Dimmick died of heart failure while on unit training near Bapaume, France, on 25 April 1917 and is buried in the Peronne Road Cemetery, Maricourt, France. He was aged 24 years." - SOURCE (www.awm.gov.au)
