Thomas Grenville James (also spelled Glenville) was the younger brother of John (Tree No 575), also from Chisholm Street. He was a 19 year old carpenter and, with the consent of his father John, enlisted at Ballarat's Mining Exchange on October 28th 1918, just two weeks before the end of the war. He trained at the recruit depot at Broadmeadows where, on November 5th, he passed the Light Horse riding test. He was destined however not to become a Light Horseman. With the Armistice having been signed he was demobilised and discharged on Christmas Eve 1918 after just 58 days of service.
