Albert Sheppard lived at 30 Mamble Road, Wollaston. His father was a regular soldier and Albert Sheppard volunteered, probably in 1914, for service in the Worcesters. He joined the 10th (Service) Battalion, which saw action on the Somme in 1916 and at Passchendaele in 1917. In March 1918 it faced the first German Spring offensive near Cambrai. It was an overwhelming attack which left the Worcesters facing a long retreat. Many of the wounded had to be left as prisoners of war. These included Private Albert Sheppard who died of wounds in a German camp. He is buried at Tournai Military Cemetery (V A 21) and commemorated on the Stourbridge and St. Thomas's church Memorials.
