Thomas Henry Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Thomas Henry Anstey of the Hampton in Arden Ansteys, who enlisted for service on 1 October 1918 in Coventry, joining the Royal Air Force as a Fitter. The war ended a month later in November 1918 then, according to the ‘Police Gazette‘, on 17 December 1918 at Blandford he was deemed a “Deserter or Absentee from His Majesty’s Service“, only to be located less than a week later.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at
