Albert

Boulton

1884

Cutsdean, Gloucestershire

16th June 1915

Killed in action after being presumed missing after an advance at Bellawaarde near Hooge in Belgium. Albert died after the battalion advanced further into enemy trenches near Y Wood. They were then hit by extremely heavy machine gun fire, shell fire and trench mortars - it was noted that approximately 90 shells per minute were hitting their position. It was also noted that any one listed as missing after that advance was certainly dead and were buried by the intense shellfire.

Lance Corporal

3rd Battalion Worcestershire Regiment

It seems more than likely Albert was a reservist - he was awarded the Mons Star because the 3rd Battalion arrived in France in August 1914
