Biography:
Thomas went to Sandhurst, and fought with some distinction in Afghanistan in the early 1840s. His regiment was transferred to Australia, and by 1854 Thomas was serving at Ballarat. His role in the attack on the Stockade, and his restrained attitude in the aftermath, led to his promotion, and he eventually reached the dizzy heights of Major General and a knighthood before retirement.
