2nd Lt. Edward Thomas Royal Garrison Artillery, Dec. 1916 before leaving for the Front. Thomas enlisted in The Artists Rifles in July 1915, despite being a mature married man who could have avoided enlisting, in part after reading Frost's "The Road Not Taken". He was promoted corporal, and in November 1916 was commissioned into the Royal Garrison Artillery. He is best known as one of the 'war poets'.
