Albert Hobson was born in Stourbridge and attended Enville Street Council School. Before 1914 he emigrated to Australia and, when his new country joined the Great War, he volunteered for the Australian infantry. He served in the 9th Battalion, which was part of the ANZAC forces assembled for the 1915 Dardanelles campaign. They landed at ANZAC Cove on the 25th April and suffered heavy casualties in the landing. Private Albert Hobson was one of those killed in action that first day. He was 31 years of age and is commemorated on the Lone Pine, Australian National, Stourbridge, St. Thomas's church and former Enville Street school Memorials.
