  Only have a old print of Albert in Uniform about the age of 26.( above ) but looking carefully, you can see he was wearing jodhpurs and on his shoes / boots, you can just make out spurs on the rear of them. Therefore he was on horse back, stationed in the UK or in Europe ??  There was at that time a Army regiment called     " Surrey Yeomanry    "Sorry but at this time I have no further information "

  Roy Bertram Wheatley ( my father ) mentioned that he left home about the age of 12 to 14 to live with his auntie
( name ?? ) and that Albert was an alcoholic with other issues. Perhaps he had PTS from the war.
He died on ;-  19 Apr  1935, from TB,  Roy's sister Olive nursed him until he died, & then Olive died from TB catching it from her father, around 1935 /36.
  In the meantime she had married George Cannon, & they had a son called David, born 17th Dec 1936. When Olive died David's father George tried to look after a new born baby. but after many months he found that he could not manage it, with work etc. Roy & Clara ( Clare ) were asked to take him, or that he would be put into a home. Clara was concerned that she was only married for a short time, then she would suddenly produced a baby!!!!. David lived with Roy & Clara for a year or two before they both had a child of their own, called Terence ( me ) Roy & Clara had the opportunity to adopt David but decided not to, as they thought that he should keep his own identity. My earliest memory was sharing a double bed with David & for many years to come. David always called Roy & Clara, Auntie & Uncle. No formal paperwork for taking David into their home was ever completed, or suggested.
