    • Albert enlisted in the Royal Marine Light Infantry ('G' Company). He was based at Chatham but disptached to the Dardanelles with the Marine Expeditionary Force from 6 February 1915. It is not clear how long he spent in the Dardanelles but from his records, it appears that he was wounded twice.
      On 24 January 1916 Albert was posted to "HMS Cyclops II". This was a shore base at Scapa Flow, operating land defences and minesweeper craft. On 1 January 1918, he served at Hoy Battery (Orkney) and whilst serving there, married Isobel. He returned to Chatham on 28 March for a short while before returning to HMS Cyclops where he remained until he was demobilised on 30 September 1918.

      Hoy Battery, Orkney
      Hoy Battery No 1 was one of three large gun batteries designed and positioned to protect one end of Scapa Flow between the islands of Orkney and Hoy. It was probably one of the most important defensive locations of both WW1 and WW2.

      In 1915 the three batteries were equipped with guns manufactured in the United States and manned by a mixture of Royal Marines and local men of the Orkney Royal Garrison Artillery. After WWI the three batteries were dismantled and the guns scrapped. The site of Battery No 1 (The Castle) was approximate 1 mile from the south coast of Orkney but although Battery No 2 forms the basis of a restored museum, No 1 Battery is long gone and sits under a housing estate, known as Innertown.
