Cpl John Tomich MM 2234 KIA 29th August 1918 aged 24 years.
Buried in Asservillers New British Cemetery, France.
Awarded military medal 20-21 Sept 1917 for his actions At Westhoek, John acted as a Stretcher Bearer and displayed great courage and
devotion to duty. His behaviour stood out conspicuously amongst the bearers. He
denied himself any rest throughout both days and nights, and undoubtedly saved
many men from death, who would otherwise have died of wounds.

Can you please change the title of private to Cpl with his MM and serial number.

Hello Diahann,
Thank you for your submission. The rank of Private is listed in our record because that is the rank attributed to John Tomich in the original Red Cross packet. The Library has indexed the information as it appears in the packets to maintain the integrity of the original material, however we are very pleased for corrections, updated or additional information to be posted as you have done here.
Kind regards, Joanna
