Lt TMD was one of many young officers killed in the First World War. I include information on him, here, as he and I both have the same name, so I am curious about his life. I have found information on his war experiences since he kept a diary during part of his service. He was the eldest son of Roger Dodington, and lived at Horsington (information elsewhere on this site). TMD was one of six children: a son and daughter of his brother James are/were living in S. Africa. TMD's trench diary, photo scrapbook, military history, and the newspaper article below can be seen at the Somerset Light Infantry Office in Taunton, Somerset, England.
