Fisher1Albert Edward Fisher was born in Preston in 1900. When War was declared Albert was just 14 years old, nevertheless he soon enlisted in the Army, probably in September/October 1914. He was given the service number 13881.

Private Albert Fisher served in the 10th (Service) Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment; he sailed to France with them on 31st July 1915.

At some point during the War he was promoted to Corporal.

It is known that Albert was wounded, having been shot in leg in France. He was brought home to Preston.  It would appear that when he recovered, he was sent back to the front as he was never awarded a Silver War Badge.


During the 1920’s Albert was promoted to Sergeant and stationed in Malta with the Loyal Regiment. Here he had two children with his first wife (photo above).
