Albert Barrett was born in 1899 in Bolton. He was the son of Charles Albert and Charlotte Barrett (nee Orbusson) and spent his early years in Astley Bridge. The family moved to 21 Prospect Hill, Turton, sometime after 1911 and in mid-1916, at only 17, Albert lied about his age and enlisted in the Lancashire Fusiliers. He served on the Western Front and was seriously injured in the 3rd Battle of Ypres, 20-23 September 1917. Happily, he survived, returned to his home in Turton and spent the rest of his life in the area.
