Thomas Frank Hardwick

M, b. 1894, d. 30 October 1917
Reference30793
Last Edited13 Oct 2018
     Thomas Frank Hardwick was born in 1894 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England.1 He was the son of Henry William Hardwick and Annie Loveland.2 He was the son of Annie Hardwick in the 1901 census in 67 Kingsley Road, Southampton, Hampshire, England.3 He appeared in the 1911 census in Theobolds, Chilworth, Surrey, England. He was listed as a domestic servant to John Arthur Bleackley a single man living on private means in a seven roomed home. There was one other servant in the household, Harold Ashwell listed as a driver, mechanic.4 Frank Hardwick enlisted into the Army Service Corps but became a rifleman in the London Battalion 1st 28 London Regiment Rifle Brigade (The Artists' Rifles). His Regiment number was B/201426, he was formerly M/2/046989 in R A S C.

The origin of Artists Rifles can be traced back to The Volunteer Corps formed in 1859 by Lord Peel in response to the threat of invasion from Napoleon III of France. The Artist Rifles was formed in 1860 along with many of the other famous London regiments as part of this Corps.

A few days after landing, Sir John French, Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Force, sent a request for 52 other ranks from the Artists to be made officers that same day to replace what he described as the 'colossal' officer losses of the 7th Division which was due back in the line in three days. The only officer training they received was a two hour talk by their battalion commander, Lt Col May, and a copy of the Field Service Pocket Book before the 2nd Lieutenant stars were fixed to the shoulder straps of their other rank uniforms. So dressed, they joined their new companies in 7th Division, many finding themselves the only officer and therefore company commander! Col. May wrote later 'surely they were the most rapidly trained and scantily equipped young officers ever produced by the British Army. This was a role the Artists filled many times over during WWI.
The Artists also fought as a battalion (1st Battalion) and were in the thick of the fighting at Passchendaele in the 3rd Battle of Ypres 1917
The first idea for the Artists, wrote Col. H A R May CB, VD (Artists' Rifles 1882-1921 and CO in 1912 and 1920) occurred to Edward Sterling, an art student and ward of Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish historian, who in 1859 convened a meeting of fellow students in the life class of Carey's School of Art, Charlotte Street, Bloomsbury, at which a special corps for artists was discussed. In 1860 this 'Corps of Artists' was formed consisting of painters, sculptors, engravers, musicians, architects and actors.

The Artists contributed the largest contingent to the famous City Imperial Volunteers sent to South Africa in 1900-1901 for the Boer War.

The Artists' Rifles mobilised on 4 August 1914 at Dukes Road, Euston as 1/28th County of London Battalion (Artists' Rifles) and became part of London Division Army Troops in the St Albans area. In October 1914 the Artists sailed to France in the SS. Australind.5,6 He died on 30 October 1917 in Flanders, France, killed in action at the second battle of Passchendaele, a phase of the Third Battle of Ypres.5,7 He is remembered on Blackheath War Memorial. His name appears also on the Frensham War Memorial as his mother was born there and went back periodically to live. His name also appears as Franke Hardwicke on Panel 145 to 147 in Tyne Cot Memorial, Zonnebeke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium.5 He also appears on the plaque in St John the Baptist, Wonersh, Surrey, England.
