Capt. Thomas Hugh C Woolley Retford Times 11 May 1917
Captain Thomas Hugh Corbett Woolley of the “Cottage” South Collingham has been killed in action. The gallant officer, who was the eldest son of Mr R S Wooley of Minster Yard, Lincoln and grandson of the late Mt T Smith-Woolley of Collingham, was 28 years of age and had held a commission in the Sherwood Foresters since September 1914. He was educated at Lancing College, and after training became a member of the firm of Messrs Smith-Woolley and Wigram, estate agents, Collingham of which his father is also a member. He had served in the County Battalion – the 8th Sherwood Forester Territorials – and when war broke out, re-joined the reserve battalion and went through the Irish Rebellion scathless. Early this year he went out to France and fell in the dawn of Friday April 27th in an attack on the German trenches.
