Meine Geschichte

Potter Albert Victor was a private of the 1st Battalion Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment), part of the 24th Brigade, 8th Division. On the 17th of November 1917 the Sherwood Foresters moved by rail and road to Brandhoek, and from the 19th on to Wieltje, going almost immediately from there up to the front line as supporting battalion in the sector just north of Passchendaele (B-company: V30.c.9.3, D-company: V30.d.2.8). On the following day the Battalion was holding the line and was subjected to very heavy shelling, which caused approximately 90 casualties. Probably, Albert was one of them. He wasn’t killed by the shelling, but severely wounded. He was taken to the 3rd Australian or 44th Casualty Clearing Station on the west of Poperinge where he died of his wounds on 24 November 1917.
