Clive Adlam, the son of Lieutenant Colonel Tom Adlam VC, has written a book on his father's life and legacy during his military career, especially during the First World War.
2nd Lieutenant Tom Adlam was serving with the 7th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, when he earned his Victoria Cross during the attack at Thiepval, France, on the 27th September 1916. Tom Adlam was not the only soldier to have been awarded the Victoria Cross during the struggle to capture Thiepval. He was joined by Private Frederick Edwards and Sergeant Robert Ryder, both of the Middlesex Regiment.
In 2003 the Adlam family loaned Colonel Tom's Victoria Cross medal group to the City of Salisbury's Guild Hall where it is on display and can be viewed by appointment.
