Known information

Private Bertie Harold Allett, of the 3rd Battalion South Staffordshire Regiment, was one of two sons of John and Emma Allett of 14 Gas Street, Oakham who died in the First World War. He was born at Brooke on the 25 October 1892 and was a miner before enlisting on 8 March 1917, six months after his elder brother Cecil had been killed. He went to the Western Front in June 1917, and was wounded on 7 March 1918. He spent three months in hospital, until 11 June, and rejoined his regiment nine days later. Bertie was killed three months later by a bullet on 29 September 1918. He is buried in Bellicourt British Cemetery and has a special memorial in B.8 because the exact position of his grave is not known. Bertie is remembered on Oakham's war memorial.
