He began military service on 5 February 1916 at 23rd Battalion, Melbourne, VictoriaG, This time he was accepted as he was 21 years and 4 months.

Thomas was described as being 5 feet 61/2 inches tall (approx 169 cm), weighing 129 lbs and a chest measurement of 31-33 inches. His complextion was described as "fresh" with blue eyes and brown hair. Thomas was Church of England and not married at this stage.
He was transferred to Bendigo Camp; C Coy, 10th D/Bn presumably for initial training. On the 10th Sep 1916 he left with 23rd Battalion for England where he joined the full 23rd Battalion.4 On 12 November 1916 he was report as being "sick" in Hospital, in the field, France. Then on the 28th of that month he embarked on H.S. Shoreham (?) at Le Havre for England with Trench Feet, arriving in hospital a day later. By the 27th April 1917 he had been cleared and transferred to the 67th Battalion at Windmill Hill, France. [The newly formed 67th Battalion AIF had been formed in England on the 25th April 1917 and assigned to the 17th Infantry Brigade and disbanded 16 September 1917].4
Thomas Coombs Shapcott married Daisy May March on 8 May 1917 at St Michael's Church, Bristol, EnglandG. Daisy had been a life-long friend of Thomas' sister "Millie" starting back in Bristol.5 From Private Thomas Shapcott's military records on 19 June 1917: "C Rims Windmill Hill 14.6.'17 Absent Without Leave from 1030 14.6.'17 till 1000 15.6.17.
