War Service

On 29 Mar 1942, at Maddington, Albert offered his services to the military and he was enlisted and posted to the 2nd (Fremantle) VDC Battalion as he had declared that both arms had been broken previously. They were the reason that his offer to enlist for service during WW1 had been declined. The only other entry in his records is his being released on 24 Jan 1944.
