On the outbreak of the First World War he sold his farm, asked his girlfriend to marry him, and joined the Australian Imperial Force. He fought to defend the Suez Canal in February 1915 and then took part in the Gallipoli landings in April. While on Gallipoli he fell ill with Typhoid. Thomas was evacuated to Malta, where he died on 4 June 1915. He was 31 years old.
