Wilding

2nd November 1887

Worcester, Worcestershire

25th September 1917

Killed in action in the closing of the Battle of Menin Road Ridge - the 2nd Worcesters were relieving several battalions on the frontline near Menin Road/Polygon Wood and more particularly Inverness Copse (all mud, trench holes, broken trees) when the Germans counter-attacked with heavy artillery fire. When the 2nd Worcesters were withdrawn on the 28th September after four days - casualty figures were 208 other ranks from 567 and 9 officers from 21. Albert was one of those men whose body was then churned up in the mud and blood obliterated by shellfire.
