About Aksel Julius Albret

Tilladelse til at føre familienavnet ALBRET i henhold til kgl. bevilling af 23/08-1944.

(Lotte Albret)

Aksel was employed to float timber on a Norwegian river in 1916 or 1917. He had an accident, where one ankle was badly crushed, and after having been hospitalized the leg in question was appr. 8 cm shorter, and he had to wear orthopedic soles in his shoes in the years thereafter and he had a pronounced limp for the rest of his life.

In 1978 riding a moped he was on his way to paint some walls for a friend of his, he was forced onto the curb and fell with his moped, a ladder and two buckets of paint; Trying to get onto his feet again he found that that same leg was broken and subsequently he was taken to hospital in Kolding. There his leg was put together again, but the doctors dídn.t realize that his leg was 8 cm shorter than the other - so they stretched the broken leg to fit the length of the other leg; he naturally woke up in great pain, and yelled for the doctors to ease the stretching weights while explaining to the doctors, that this leg had been shorter since his youth and they should have noticed the build up heel of the shoe; the stretch was of course sunsequently eased.

I shared three long talks with him in the sick ward over the next few weeks. He told me in my first visit of his childhood, his adolescence and about the love of his life, Nina, who eventually would be the mother of his 11 children: Niels Aage (1919), Ingeleif (1921), Else Karen-Marie (1922), Erik 81923), Herluf (1925), Per Morten (1928), Bent Lynge (1934), Annelise (1931), Jan (1935), Jytte (1936) og Poul Erik (1938).

His wife, Nina died in 1938, while Else Karen-Marie was the oldest of the children still living with the parents, since Niels Aage was in university and Ingeleif was Au Pair girl in Amager. The family was to be split up subsequently and Else had a break down from the grief.

In my second visit he told me about his parents and how they coped in Tullebølle with all the children.

In my third visit he told me some anecdotes about his grandparents, of which one of them participated in the battle of Dybbøl as an enlisted soldier, being a very good marksman, as could be seen in his shooting records, which Aksel kept in his drawers at home in Kolding.

As I had to leave for a couple of weeks on a business trip - this day was to be the last time I saw him alive; returning home 10 days later I heard of his fate. He died from pneumonia and was buried shortly before I returned.
