"Died of double pneumonia at Shorncliffe Hospital"
Late Cadet F.D. Frost - Newport Man's Death -
"The death took place at Shornecliffe Hospital from pneumonia of Cade Frederick Frost, R.A.F., of Durban, youngest son of Mr. Edward Frost, Malpas. He was an old Newport Intermediate boy. Acquiring a knowledge of architecture and drawing he passed into the office of the late Mr. C.J. Fox and later that of Mr Maples Linton, architects. Going to South Africa he was appointed architect to the Corporation of Durban, where his brother, Mr. Arthur Stanley Frost has been Assistant Engineer for some years, and he carried out some important undertakings. He married in 1913, Kitty Unigeni, daughter of Mr. C.R. Bishop, Durban. He left as soon as the Durban Corporation could release him to join the R.A.F. at home. In consequence of many delays and disappointments in recuring a place in drafts he decided to come over at his own expense, and after persevering efforts and with the support of the High Commissioner of South Africa, he was accepted as a cadet in the Naval section of the R.A.F. He joined at the distribution depot in North London, where he was three days, and then contracted influenza. Apparently, he recovered, and was sent to Shornecliffe, but was unfortunately attacked with double pneumonia, passing away on Friday. the body was brought back to Newport, and the funeral took place on Thursday. The Rev. W. Williams, Vicar of All Saints, conducted the service, which was attended by Mr. E. Frost, father; Messrs A. and E. Frost, brothers; Mrs Frost, sister-in-law; Messrs F Hands, brother-in-law; A. Frost and F.A. Hill, uneles; and others. There were numerous wreaths from members of the family, the Squadron Commander, officers, N.C.O.'s and cadets of No. 3 Squadron, and the Commanding Officer, officers, N.C.O.'s and cadets of No. [?] R.A.F. wing. Mssrs. Houghton Brother carried out the arrangements."
