Sgt Thomas Owen is described in the book "Wales on the Western Front" (edited by John Richards pub 1995 by the University of Wales Press. ISBN 0-7083-1252-7)It contains (pages 64/65) an extract of the war diary of Lt Martin St Helier Evans, in which gives an evocative description of the man, his work as leader of Platoon no 6 and their relationship.
