Papers of 3650 Private (Pte) Frederick 'Tom' Thomas Heming of 54 Battalion relating to his service in the First World War. The collection includes letters, a copy of Heming's grave record and a copy of the tribute notice relating to Heming's death printed in 'The Balmain Observer', 1918. The letters include eight by Heming to his sister Violet, 1917-1918 and two letters from the 10 General Hospital to Heming's other sister, Mrs Millie Weston, 1918. Frederick writes of life at the army camps in Liverpool NSW and Codford, Salisbury Plain, his leave in Belfast and his fear experienced during an air raid in London. The letters from the matron of the hospital, 1918, inform Mrs Weston of Heming's arrival in the hospital following a gas attack near Rouen and his subsequent death.
