Other Information:

Albert was employed in his father's business when war was declared. He entered the war in Mesopotamia in 1916 as a Sergeant, serving with No 40 General Hospital. On 12 March 1918, he was mentioned by Lieutenant-General Sir Stanley Maud in his dispatch from Mesopotamia "For gallant and distinguished services in the Field". He was then awarded the M.S.M. "In recognition of valuable serves rendered with the Forces in Mesopotamia during the present war". Albert was promoted to Staff Sergeant and remained in Mesopotamia until the end of hostilities. He was then shipped off to India, seeing further service acting in support of British forces engaged in the during the Third Afghan War. He then appears to have returned to the UK for his demobilisation and discharge, and his address on his Medal Index Card is given as: 10 Windmill Street, West Croydon, Surrey. Albert was the son of Sarah and Robert Hughes, a Lime Merchant. [Information researched and kindly provided by Michael W Cook (Portrait photograph also courtesy of Michael W Cook)]
