Albert was born at Rowsley, VIC - near Bacchus Marsh - in 1894 to William Hine and Mary Elizabeth Burbidge. After the war Albert married Helen Shaw. Albert had a half great nephew, Arthur Hine(1), and a half nephew, Robert Kerr(2), as well as two cousins(3), Sydney Dubout and Vere Dubout and a brother-in-law, Norman West who are also remembered in the Avenue.

Albert was a farmer at Rowsley, VIC when he enlisted in the AIF, 14th Reinforcements, 22nd Battalion on the 28th of January 1916, aged 21 - he had served for 18 months with the Light Horse at Bacchus Marsh. Albert embarked aboard the HMAT A32 Themistocles in late July, disembarking at Plymouth, England in September.

In mid-November 1916 Albert embarked for France, joining his unit in the field in December. In January 1918 he spent a month in hospital suffering from gastritis before he was wounded in action - gunshot wound to the right leg - in late March. Shortly after he was admitted to hospital in Calais, France and then transferred to the 1st Birmingham War Hospital, England. In June Albert was transferred to the 3rd Australian Army Hospital, Dartford, for three weeks before being discharged to the 3rd Command Depot. In December he embarked for Australia aboard the Somali, arriving back in Australia in February 1919 and was discharged from the AIF in May.

Albert died at Bacchus Marsh, VIC in 1977, aged 83.
