Hi Lindsey
Welcome to the LF Web Site.
I'm sure I can help with information.
Do you happen to know his Regimental Number?
I have found 9 with that name who served with the LF's during WW1.
Click on the link below...this may be him? This chap served with the 2nd / 5th battalion who were heavily involved in the Battle of Cambria which began on 20th November 1917 and ended on 3rd December 1917. We have to be careful to make the correct identification as there are others who may fit the bill so to speak. Another possibility is a Warrant Officer who received a gun shot wound to his shoulder? plus 7 others who are recorded as Privates.
Unfortunately the National Archives have a very limited record of British POW's during WWI. Once we know for sure that we have identified the correct Thomas Stott I will check the records but have to say it is very unlikely that he will be recorded.
If you go to the homepage of the Web Site and scroll down and click on the link to Volume 1 of the History of the Lancashire Fusiliers 1914 -1918 you can read extensive information regarding the Third Battle of Ypres..The Battle of Cambria. (Pages 215 to 277). A lot to read!
