After leave in the UK, Thomasserved as Aid De Ca mp to the General Officer Commanding Southern ArmyIndia fro m 22nd June 1906 until 29th October 1908, and on 30 Septemb er1910 he was appointed Assistant Military Secretary to th e Commander inChief and Governor of Gibraltar. Shortly bef ore the outbreak of WW1,Thomas returned to the 1st Battalio n of his regiment, as OfficerCommanding D Company.
      1st King's Own, which was part of 12 Brigade, 4th Division , (one ofthe original four divisions which made up the "Bri tish ExpeditionaryForce") landed in France on 23 August 191 4, and fought in the retreatfrom Mons, and the battles of t he Marne. Thomas was promoted Major on30 September 1914 . On 2nd July 1915 Thomas went on what was supposedto be o ne month's leave to England. On the same day, Lt-Col Purvis became battalion commander. However the following day, Pur vis wastransferred to take command of the 2nd Battalion o f the Regiment andThomas was recalled and appointed Command ing Officer of 1st King'sOwn. In late October 1915, whil e still substantive major, he waspromoted temporary Brigadi er General and placed in permanent commandof 55 Brigade. T his brigade consisted of 7th Buffs, 7th Queens, 7thRoyal We st Kents and 8th East Surreys, and was raised from voluntee rsof 1914 and early 1915. It was initially inexperienced , with fewbattalions having more than two regular officer s and a handfulofregular NCO's. The brigade had been in Fra nce for only three monthswhen Thomas took it over, and hi s task was to prepare for it'sblooding in the Somme offensi ve of 1916, (planning and preparation forwhich, had begun i n late 1915). 55 Brigade was part of 18 Divisionunder th e command of Major General Ivor Maxse, an innovativedivisio nal commander who laid great emphasis on training andprepar ation prior to any operation.

The area had been subjected to a sevenday a rtillery bombardment, which had cut the German wire, and 55 Brigade were through the front line trenches fairly quickly . Thomasthen sent up his two reserve battalions and the bri gade pressed on,fighting it's way into the German main posi tion (Pommiers Trench) by10.15hrs. and reaching Mountaube n Alley by 13.30hrs. 55 Brigade hadtaken all it's first da y objectives, as had the rest of 18 Division(one of only tw o divisions to do so). A few days later 18 Divisionwas rel ieved, and on 11 July, 55 Brigade was sent to help 30 Divis ion,which was stuck short of Trones Wood (Bois de Troncs) . On 13 July, 55Brigade, augmented by two battalions of 5 3 Brigade, attacked TronesWood at 19.00 hrs, but the nigh t attack on a strongly held position,through a wood devasta ted by artillery fire, failed.
