Pte Albert Edward Munt

Pte Albert Edward Munt, 269647, 1st Battalion Herts Regiment, was killed in action on July 31st, 1917. He was reported missing from that date, but his widow was still awaiting definite news in the following March.

Pte Munt, a native of Wheathampstead, married Lillian Florence Bent in St Albans in early 1911 and the couple moved to Luton. They lived at 11 Oxford Road, Luton, and Albert worked for Messrs Burgess's mineral water works in Luton.

He joined the London Royal Field Artillery in May 1916 and later was transferred to the Herts Regiment at Halton Camp. He went to France in November 1916. He was in the Battle of St Julien in July 1917, where he was last seen attending to wounded comrades.

Albert is commemorated on the Luton and Wheathampstead War Memorials in addition to the Menin Gate Memorial at Ypres.
