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.

British Army 1st Btn. Royal Berkshire Regiment

from:Newcastle upon Tyne

(d.8th Oct 1918)

Alexander Sambridge (Sambidge) was my father's brother. I began researching his history in 2013 and came across a beautiful card, with French lace and embroidered lilac flowers and the sentiment "To My Dear Mother". 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.


Pte. Albert Sambucci

British Army 11th Btn. Royal Sussex Regiment


(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.

He was a machine gunner and had spent time guarding the Suez Canal in Egypt and on the front line near Arras in July and August. The Battalion moved to the Somme on the 3rd of September. Letters from his comrades say that he was buried "at a point East of Authuille" but the grave was lost during the subsequent fighting. His name appears on the Thiepval memorial.

He was born in Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire in September 1895 and worked with his father as a boot, shoe and clog maker from the age of 13 until joining the army in 1914.

All his letters and other material are in the North Yorkshire County Record Office at Northallerton.
