A Diary from the Dardanelles 1915 p15
A Diary from the Dardanelles 1915 p15
I found this as an article published in the Darwen Advertiser and News, Wednesday November 3, 1982. 'TODAY WE publish the lucid and vivid diary of a Darwen man who volunteered for the Fourth East Lancashire Regiment during the First World War. Mrs Nellie Garner unearthed her late husband Albert's diary of his time in the Dardanelles while looking through some old papers...' We visited the Imperial War Museum in 2009 and were able to read and obtain copies of the original diaries, deposited by his daughter nearly three decades ago.

A further extract from the diary of a Darwen man who volunteered for the Fourth East Lancashire Regiment during the First World War.
Mrs Nellie Garner unearthed her late husband Albert's diaries of his wartime service while looking through a drawer of old papers in 1982. Mr Garner had died in May 1968 when he was 72. Their daughter, Connie, transcribed the diaries before passing them on to the Imperial War Museum. The directness and simplicity of his writing is particularly impressive as he had left school at 12 ˝ years old and (in Connie’s words) ‘never pretended to be clever but he had learned how to write’.

Albert was the main town behind the lines for the Allies nearest to the 1916 Somme battlefields. It lies on the main D929 road that runs east to Bapaume across the Somme battlefields, and west to Amiens in the other direction (although the D929 now diverts to the south around Albert, the original road still runs through it).

For a town at the heart of the British activities in this region, there are surprisingly few Great War sights to see in Albert. Devastated during the war and rebuilt afterwards, it has to be said that it is not as attractive a city as Ypres. As a base for battlefield touring both accommodation and restaraunts are fairly limited. However, it is an important location on the battlefield, and this page describes what there is to be seen. In terms of the history of the war, Albert came to be associated with the British when their troops took over the lines here in the summer of 1915. After the war, Albert was 'adopted' by Birmingham.

In the centre of Albert is one of the most famous icons for the British in the Great War - the Golden Virgin on top of the Basilica. The golden statue of the Madonna holding aloft her child was visible from far away, and of course was an excellent target for enemy artillery. It was damaged fairly early on, in January 1915, and the statue was knocked from its perch but stayed leaning at an angle before being secured by the French in that position.

A superstition grew up that the war would end only when the statue finally fell. It remained, somewhat improbably, in the same position all the time that Albert was in French and then British hands. The Germans advanced into Albert during their Spring Offensive in 1918, and well aware that the tower could be used as an excellent observation point by the Germans, it was British artillery that then deliberately targeted it and the statue finally fell. Albert was retaken by the British (the 8th East Surreys) four months later, but it was another three months after this until the Armistice.

Possibly Albert. His half-sister Charlotte Hollingham Robertson was born at 188, Euston Road, Pancras, London in 1878 when Albert would have been 7. This photographer's studio was in Euston Road. We think the photo was passed down the family.
