Degree 1908 Liverpool University, Liverpool, Lancashire M.B., Ch.B. Old David paid for his medical studies at Liverpool University, as some kind of quid pro quo, or perhaps because Thomas was broke. AMA thought he graduated in 1906 or 1907. 3a

Start date uncertain, initially in partnership with Dr Banks who had the practice and built the house. Parkside House, 107 Liscard Road is ATA's home address on his death in 1917, so presumably bought (into) practice before the war.  
Occupation between 1938 and 1948 St Olaves, 19 Woolley St, Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire GP.

Occupation estimated between 1907 and 1909 Bolton Royal Infirmary, Chorley Street, Bolton, Lancashire AMA: He worked first at Bolton Royal Infirmary as a houseman, I think a surgical houseman, where the strain of treating victims of terrible accidents in the textile mills so undermined his health that he signed on for a year as a ship's doctor on a tramp steamer. 4
