Biography contributed by Evan Evans

From Steve Smith

Remembering Pte Albert Raymond Levett who died this day in 1917 in the arms of a German soldier, Frederick Wilhelm Söll. Ray was part of the 48th Battalion and took part in the fighting at Bullecourt. He was wounded severely when his company took the German trenches and was left there when the Germans counter-attacked. Söll, also wounded, was placed beside him. Just before he died Albert gave Söll his watch and wallet which were returned to Albert's family after the war. I have traced a living relative of Söll's in Germany but she has not responded to my enquiries.
