Thomas Edward Goodeve

Thomas Edward Goodeve (1876-1918)
1919 Obituary [1]

Major THOMAS EDWARD GOODEVE, O.B.E., R.E., was born in London on 5th August 1876.
He was educated at St. Paul's School and at the Royal College of Science and School of Mines.
In 1896 he became a premium apprentice in the locomotive works of the London and North Western Railway at Crewe, and on its completion he entered the drawing office of the same works, subsequently becoming in January 1902 assistant manager in the locomotive works.
This position he held until 1909 when he was transferred to the Outdoor Department and later to the Steel Works.
Two years later he became assistant manager on locomotive repairs at Crewe and out-station erecting shops, and in December 1913 he was appointed works manager and assistant locomotive superintendent at the Inchicore Works of the Great Southern and Western Railway, Dublin.
In 1916 he joined the Royal Engineers and served in Palestine from January 1917 until 26th January 1918, when he was accidentally killed at Baalbeck, Syria, at the age of forty-one. On two occasions he was personally congratulated by the Commander-in-Chief for his efficient work.

Odd that Major Goodeve died in 1918 but he is listed under 1919 on the memorial.
