Huthwaite Online WW1 Remembrance

Private 19774 Albert Edward Buxton presents additional Huthwaite remembrance. Reportage exposes former Blackwell Road ties, further relating another previously unlisted war hero. Father was Quartermaster Walter Buxton, who's own reported death after rejoining the colours in South Africa came by unfortunate circumstances coincidentally dated just 5 days later. Albert registered mothers later address at 3 Furnace Hill, Chesterfield, potentially locating Mrs Annie Buxton in the Clay Cross area.

Private Albert E Buxton was among many lives lost when 9th Battalion attacked German lines in Belgium. Recognising 3rd Battle of Ypres cannot yet however, find A E Buxton listed on a UK War Memorial commemorating Private 19774 Sherwood Forester.
