Biography

Husband of Katie Anne ALLMOND

Arthur Allmond was only in the field for approximately 1 month before he was killed in action. He joined his battalion the 50th on August 25th 1917 and was killed in action on September 26th 1917. According to records he was buried near Westhoek, 2 miles SW of Zonnebeke. Due to the German advance and constant shelling the grave was subsequently lost. At this time the 50th was in action at Polygon Wood and it is assumed that he was lost in this battle.

Like many AIF men he was found guilty of being AWL on August 20th and lost 2 days pay as a result.
