Sergeant Albert GILCHRIST

Sgt Albert R. Gilchrist

 

Upon the death of his older brother Captain Walter Richard Gilchrist M.C.,  Albert Richard Gilchrist (who was also on active service in France) was sent his brothers kit bags while his mother Mary Gilchrist was sent his personal belongings. Tragedy struck the Gilchrist family again when Albert was also killed on the 1st of September 1918. Unlike his brother, Albert lies in a marked War grave at the New British Cemetery at Assevillers, France.
