Albert William Devonshire
Known as Lofty or Devo
Albert was 5ft 11 tall hence was called Lofty
Captured Hong Kong
Albert returned to UK and received an Army pension as he'd had to have a cartilage in his knee removed whilst a prisoner and it had become infected and he was never able to bend his knee well after that (he'd been a steel erector prior to joining the army in 1936).
He returned home on crutches, weighing about 6 stone having suffered from beri beri, dysentery and other illness. He was incredibly thin and remained so during the rest of his life.
