An incident relating to him was reported in the Queensland Times, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia on 6 August 1946, it read:
(Before Mr. T. E. Dwyer, S.M.)
In the Court of Petty Sessions yesterday an application by Victory Gordon Donald Pask for the summary ejectment of Thomas Young from a dwelling house situated in River-road, Dinmore, was dismissed by the Magistrate on the ground that no evidence was shown by the complainant that notice to quit had been served in accordance with the regulations. Mr. J. K. Smith (Messrs. P. L. Cardew, Simpson, and Merrell) appeared on behalf of the complainant, and Mr. M. Williams (Messrs. Casey and Williams) appeared on behalf of the respondent.
Victory Gordon Donald Pask, a motor mechanic, said he lived at River-road, Dinmore, with his wife's parents. He was the owner of a house in River-road, Dinmore, at present occupied by Mr. Young. Witness purchased the land from Mrs. Holmes. The first agreement was on February 16, 1946, and the rest of the payment was made on May 8, 1946. The dwelling was purchased by witness subject to Mr. Young's tenancy.
Witness paid £500 for the property. He put in £250 of his own money and £250 loaned from the West Moreton Building Society. He visited the house first in February in company with Mr. Ross, who was the agent for the previous owner. On May 6 witnes went to see Mr. Young and told him that he was about to buy the place, and that he would want it for himself and family to live in. He also mentioned that he would try to find a house for Young. Young told witness that he did not have a place to go to, but he would try to obtain one. Witness served a notice to quit on May 10. No-one else was present when he handed it to the respondent. Witness received rent of 17/6 per week from the respondent.
THREE YEARS OVERSEAS. Witness said he had enlisted in the A.I.F. in August, 1940 and had spent three years overseas. He was discharged on November 15, 1945, with leave until February 10, 1946. He was married in May, 1943, and had two children. Since his discharge he had been living with his wife and family at his wife's parents' home. There were two bedrooms, dining room, lounge, and kitchen in that house and witness and his family occupied one bedroom and had the use of the kitchen for which they paid rent.
Witness admitted that respondent who had five children living at home with him, and his wife, probably would have more difficulty in finding a place than he (witness) would. Witness knew that the respondent's youngest child suffered from defective speech, but he did not know that it received specialist doctor's attention in Brisbane.
Mr. Williams asked for a dismissal of the information on the grounds that there was no evidence before his Worship that the notice to quit had been served in accordance with the regulations. The case was dismissed on that ground.3

Research Note: His next of kin, at the time he enlisted in WWII, was Helen PASK - it is not sure whether this is his mother, or his wife.1
