To honour those who served their country

“In this their finest hour”



Albert William Devonshire

Known as Lofty or Devo


Middlesex Regiment

PT Instructor

Albert was 5ft 11 tall hence was called Lofty


Japanese POW

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.
