Private Albert Harris

In May 1916 the St Andrew’s, Oxshott, parish magazine recorded that:

Albert Harris was one of the ‘Derby Recruits’ and was called up for training in his group. Never of robust health he was unable to endure the heavy work put upon him. He caught a chill, and after a very short illness was called away for higher service among the great majority of Christ’s soldiers in Paradise. The funeral took place at Chatham. RIP.
