Dodington Family History

Lt Thomas Marriott Dodington

1894 --- July 1 1916

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.
