Hullwebs History of Hull


Albert Crowther's War


Pte Albert Crowther training in LondonPrivate Albert Crowther's diary was kindly loaned to Hullwebs by his niece, Mrs. Swinson of Kingston Upon Hull. She fondly remembers talking to Uncle Albert in the early 1920s but, she recalls; "It was as if he was talking about ancient history. In those days, I was too young to appreciate that war only finished a few short years earlier." She adds; "It has always been a puzzle to me why his diary just stops so suddenly. I never did discover why. There have been many theories over the years, but I guess no one will ever know the real reason why." In the picture above, Pte. Albert Edward Victor Crowther is the rather smart looking gentleman on the very left hand side of the photograph, taken during his training in the city of London.
