Albert Edward S Blaydon, my 4th cousin three times removed, was born in Mildenhall, Suffolk, in 1897, the youngest of the five children of Sydney, a carpenter, and Mary Lily (nee Vale). In 1901 the family was living in Fordham and I found them in the 1911 census in Leagrave, Luton.
Where, in 1914, he enlisted in the Bedfordshire regiment and was posted to the 1st/5th battalion as a private, serial number 5073. The battalion was sent to the Balkans in 1915, where they disembarked at Gallipoli on 10 August.
Albert died on 16 August 1915 and is buried in the Amzak Cemetery, Suvla.
We will remember them.
