Meine Geschichte

Private Frederick Stanley ALBRIGHT ( 50th Bn. Canadian Infantry (Alberta Regiment), 10th Canadian Brigade, 4th Canadian Division ) was killed in action on the 26th of October 1917, the first day of the Second Battle of Passchendaele. That day, the 10th Canadian Brigade was positioned between the Ravebeek and the Ypres-Roulers Railway ; their Headquarter was located north of Beecham Farm ( 28.D.16.a.70.60 ). On their left was the 3rd Canadian Division with the 8th and 9th Canadian Brigades. The attack began at 5.40 a.m. with the 46th Battalion (South Saskatchewan Regiment) while the 50th Battalion was in support. After 4 hours of struggle, both battalions succeeded in taking the Red Line and Decline Copse, the first objective. Due to heavy counter attacks by the Germans, they lost their hold on Decline Copse and were pushed back.
Private Albright fell because of a shell fire, which killed him instantly. We presume he fell close to the jumping off line, as after the war his body was found at Berlin Wood ( 28.D.10.c.50.30), close to the Headquarters and locations of the 3rd Canadian Division.
Private Frederick Stanley Albright is buried at Larch Wood ( Railway Cutting ) Cemetery.
