|Those Who Came After The Original 500|
Thomas Puddister's record states that he was from Bay
He joined the Royal Newfoundland Regt and managed to live through the war. Sometime in his life he moved to Braintree, Massachusetts. He died in 1972 and was buried in the Blue Hills Cemetery.
There he remained until just recently when his plaque was discovered by Parker Nadeau.
Parker is a retired Deputy Chief from the Braintree Fire Dept, and for the Memorial day services in his town he places flags on veterans graves in the Blue Hills Cemetery.
It was during his work this year that he uncovered the flat Metal Marker of Pte Puddister. A veteran himself, Parker intends to care for the marker and ensure that it has a flag to commemorate Pte Puddister's service.
