This is a photograph of my grandmother Lottie Elizabeth Saddington taken during the first world war about 1916. She was a Vad nurse during this time. She was born in 1898, Market Deeping Lincolnshire. Her brother William Saddington was killed in France in 1914. I don't know which hospital Lottie served in, maybe Leicester.

Pte. Arthur "Sagger" Saddler .     British Army 6th Btn. King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry   from Normanton, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

(d.5th Aug 1915)

Private Saddler left a 2-year-old child and pregnant wife to fight for his country. All we know after that is that he went to France in May 1915 and died on August 5th of that year. No further details and do not know where to go from here. He was a hero in our eyes.

He is buried at Bedford House Cemetery, West Vlaanderen, Belgium.

Stuart Sadler

Pte. Evan Robert Sadler .     British Army 2nd Btn. Welsh Regiment   from Edmondstown, Llantrisant

(d.28th Oct 1914)

In October 1914, Evan's regiment was entrenched in the area of Ypres in Belgium at Gheluvelt. On the 27th October 1914 some members of the regiment found two gondolas in a lake nearby and decided to have a race in them across the lake, whereby they were bombarded by the Germans. The following day the Germans attacked the lines of the Welsh Regiment. This attack was repelled and the Welshmen counter-attacked. 514 men were killed.

Evan Sadler died from his wounds on the following day 28th October 1914. He is buried at Ypres Cemetery Extension. He left a wife and a daughter who was born 2 months after his death. His name is recorded on De Ruvigny's Roll of Honour 1914-1924.

I have no knowledge of the whereabouts of a photo of him, but would like to trace one. Evan would be a cousin of mine.

The card reads: "I send my best wishes to you all at home and a bright and happy Xmas. Love to you all. From your loving son, Alex"

Alexander is buried in Forenville Military Cemetery in Nord, France.I am very glad to have learned about my uncle's wartime service. It has allowed me to say "Thank you" to him; he was a young man with his whole life ahead of him.

Lilian Reed

Pte. Albert Sambucci .     British Army 11th Btn. Royal Sussex Regiment   from Brighton

(d.3rd Jun 1916)

My grandad Albert Sambucci was just 23 when he died near Cambrin, France. He is buried in Cambrin Church extension cemetery. Prior to enlistment he was working in the family ice cream business in Brighton. His family had come from Italy in the early 1800s. He was married and had a son, Loreto, who was only two when his dad was killed. He also had a baby daughter, Philomena, who was born after his departure for France so he never saw her.

His letters speak of the cold and lice-ridden blankets. He also mentioned being made a bomber and trench raids. He said on one occasion it took him 2.5 hours to cover 120 yards from no mans land back to his trench. His last letter written just two days before his death said he was in the pink and hopeful of some leave. On the day that he was killed the Battalion diary states that three other ranks were killed when Sap15 was blown in, then an hour later two other ranks were shot by sniper fire, so we do not know the circumstances of his last moments.
