Thomas Eadie was born on 8 April 1887 in Scotland. He enlisted in the Navy in 1909, became a Gunner's Mate and was also trained as a diver. While serving as a Chief Gunner's Mate in the 1920s, he assisted in salvage work on the sunken submarines S-51 (SS-162) and S-4 (SS-109), receiving the Navy Cross for each operation, and the Medal of Honor for extraordinary heroism in rescuing a fellow diver on the S-4 on 18 December 1927.
Eadie retired from active duty in 1939, but returned to service during World War II, receiving appointment as Chief Gunner (Warrant Officer). He later became a Commissioned Officer and retired in the rank of Lieutenant. Thomas Eadie died at Brockton, Massachusetts, on 14 November 1974. (history.navy.mil)
