Other Information:

Albert was a medical orderly in the RAMC and was serving on the hospital ship, HMHS “Asturias” when, on the night of the 21st March, 1917, she was torpedoed in the English Channel by a U Boat 5 miles South of Start Point. The “Asturias” was beached, but thirty five men lost their lives in the attack, Albert Lloyd being one of them. His body was washed ashore and recovered and brought back to his home town for burial (WWN 1917). Albert had served in France before his death and had already been wounded, on his recovery he was posted to the “Asturias”. He had three brothers in the forces in France and he was the son of Samuel Lloyd. [Information researched and kindly provided by Harry (Jones 75 - GWF)]
