Henderson, Thomas Eric

Henderson, Thomas Eric, Second Lieutenant, South Staffs Regt., killed in France, was educated at University College School, from which school he graduated with First Class Honours in June 1893. He did not enter Guy's as a dental student until May 1910, but from that time until qualification in May, 1913, he endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact. He took the First Year's Dental Prize in 1911, and the Second Year's Prize in 1912. He was Assistant Demonstrator of Dental Metallurgy from May - July 1911, and Assistant Dental House-Surgeon from January to March 1912. After qualifying in 1913 he was in practice until September 1914, when at the age of 38 years, he joined the Public Schools battalion, and in July 1915 received a commission. A year later he went to France, and in defending an advanced post at the corner of Delville Wood was reported "missing" on August 31st, 1916. The War Office now reports that evidence has been received that he was killed in action. Guy's Hospital Reports Vol.LXX, War Memorial Number
