      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

The Auberge de Baviere has an ancient and honourable history, having been the headquarters of the Anglo-Bavarian Knights of St. John. Immediately before the war it had been used as headquarters for the Command Paymaster, and previous to that as an Officers’ Mess. Before it could be used cleaning throughout was necessary; the roofs of certain rooms had to be renewed, and the usual sanitary fittings had to be erected. The hospital was ready for opening on June 15th with 100 beds, later increased to 130 in July. In spite of its smallness Baviere Hospital did excellent work, for from the beginning many surgical cases of a very severe type were admitted, and shortly afterwards it specialised in the reception of surgical injuries of the head and spine. Baviere Hospital is also conveniently situated in Valletta itself, facing directly the Marsamuscetto Harbour; around it is a slummy district, but no ill effects were traced to that factor.

Albert John TOWNSEND. Private 6150, 10th Australian Infantry, died 18th September 1918 aged 21. He was the son of Alexander and Marion of Renmark, South Australia. he was born at Aldridge, Satffordshire. He is commemorated on the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial, Somme, France

 

 

 

.

 

 

 

The Townsend Family emigrated from the UK to Australia in December 1913 to care for orphaned cousins. My Great Grand Father Edward Fred Townsend (Albert John's older brother) joined the 10bn AIF early 1916 and Albert John Townsend joined later the same year. Grand Father Edward Townsend was wounded, shortly after the battalion moved out of the lines at Mouquet Farm, and was invalided back to Australia. While Albert John Townsend arrived to the Western Front after Pozières and Mouquet Farm he fought with the 10th  battalion until the  battalion's final battle near Villeret on 18th September 1918. As the 10th Bn leap-frogged the 12th Bn at Grand Priel Woods, to begin the 2nd phase of the operation to capture the Hindenburg Outpost Line near Villeret, devastating  German Machine fire mowed down Albert John Townsend and his comrades beside him. Although temporarily halted, the attack continued  and the 10th Bn alongside other battalions of the 1st and 4th Australian Divisions successfully captured the heights of the Hindenburg Outpost Line. Albert was buried alongside his fallen mates at the edge of Grand Priel Woods, however subsequent heavy artillery and aerial bombing obliterated the area and later attempts to locate Albert's grave were unsuccessful.

It's interesting that Albert John Townsend's name is recorded on numerous monuments not only at the Aldridge Croft War Memorial in England, and
Villers-Bretonneux Memorial in France, but also the following Austalian memorials; Renmark War Memorial in country South Australia, South Australian State War Memroial in Adelaide and the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

Stand down soldier , your duty is done , rest easy!

LEST WE FORGET!

Victoria Cross citation for James Ashworth 
Despite the ferocity of the insurgent's resistance, Ashworth refused to be beaten. His total disregard for his own safety in ensuring that the last grenade was posted accurately was the gallant last action of a soldier who had willingly placed himself in the line of fire on numerous occasions earlier in the attack. This supremely courageous and inspiring action deserves the highest recognition.

Hi

On the Longton Cenotaph you listed on 2003 :

GREEN J Sapper 91957 184th Tunnelling Coy Royal Engineers died 23/10/1916. Commemorated at Bissegem Communal Cemetery Belgium I.B.3

I have a Jas. Green on the war memorial in Newton Derbyshire and I am trying to trace his unit. I thought as he was coal miner he may have been in the Tunnelling Coy and possibly 91957. But he would not have been commemorated at Longton, so I wondered if you had been able to confirm your J Green at Longton was 91957

 

Thanks Tony
