Remembered Today:

68th Protection Coy. Royal Defence Force


Recommended Posts

Sgt Albert Edward Winsford age 43 died on 20th April 1919 and is buried in Croydon. His name is on our church's memorial board. His gravestone is the standard CWGC headstone and he is commemorated on the CWGC web site.

Am I assuming correctly that to have this deserved honour his death must have been because of the war and what actually task did the Protection Company undertake?



His service record indicates he enlisted in 1914 into the 4th (Reserve) Battalion "The Queens". He had previous service in the Irish Rifles. His service record is over stamped with Royal Defence Corps but no date.
