Descendant, Scilla Bunn, relates that Thomas served in the Boer War, but not in the Great War. He was involved in the slash and burn policy, which he hated.

Between about 1900 - 1917, Thomas was a farm manager on the Marham Estate, Norfolk. He also farmed at Grange Farm and Church Farm, Kenninghall, taking them over from an aunt (thought to be a Reeve or a Smith) about 1917. He was a "horse master".

Scilla also writes that Thomas owned Church Farm in Kenninghall (possibly inherited from his mother's family) and a lovely Queen Anne house near the church which was derelict when Scilla was a little girl. It was sold for £1000 in the 1960's. Thomas' father lost a lot of money through embezzlement by a local solictor who was eventually struck off. Thomas eloped with his wife because his family disapproved of the great age difference (he was approximately 20 years older than her).
