Image 1: Albert Potter in 1915 aged 23. Albert survived Gallipoli but was wounded in the first Battle of Gaza on the 19th April 1917. He also appears to have fought in the second Gaza battle in November 1917. He was later discharged as the leg wound never healed and in 1927 his left leg had to be amputated.
