Tom Burgess was born in Hampshire, England. He came to South Australia on the Ballarat in 1923 and worked on two properties at Meningie. He recalls both of the farmers as very kind. After some years in various agricultural jobs including share farming and droving, he learned the arc-welding trade. His first welding job, in 1938, was working for Holden's at Woodville. In the same year he married and settled in Norwood. About 18 months later he joined the Adelaide Metal Works (later J. Unsworth Ltd) in Register Place, Adelaide, where he remained until his retirement. Unsworths converted to munitions production during the Second World War, and Tom was in a reserved occupation. His wife deserted him and their three children. The children lived in Salvation Army homes for a time in the 1940s while Tom lived in boarding houses.
