Military Career

Records show that Albert Victor Beckett served in the armed forces. He joined the Northumberland Fusilliers in May 1915. He was not discharged until April 1920. Is papers show he was considered no longer physically fit. He had received a gun shot wound to the left thigh and left elbow and he was 60 per cent disabled. I did not see any reference to serving overseas in his records, and there is no mention of where/how he was wounded.

His father at the time of enlistment was said to be a serving soldier. His Mother Alice was living in Station terrace Southtown. The brother, also Frederick George, was also a serving soldier. He had two younger sisters Gladys and Emma.

He received regular promotions over the almost 5 years he was in the army, ending up a sargeant.

In 1916 he was punished for 'firing a round of ball ammunition in his billet'.
