THOMAS HARDING R.N. OF THE REFORM INN, PILTON

/media/flashcomm?action=mediaview&context=normal&id=382
Description:

Thomas Harding was a man with an adventurous past, which only came to light when his medals were sold at auction. He was born in Weymouth in 1847, joined the Royal Navy at the age of 15 and served with distinction until 1884. His most hazardous time came later that year when he was involved in the relief of General Gordon and the British subjects at Khartoum as a member of the Royal Naval Brigade. He eventually retired to North Devon in 1892 and was landlord of the newly-built The Reform Inn in Pilton until 1905. He died in 1906.

This short article by Pilton historian Margaret Reed tells more of his story.
