Newspaper Extract - Source Unknown "The "Henley and South Oxfordshire Standard," of the 15th inst. has the following interesting article for the death of Warrant Officer Frederick W. Quinian, of the Mechanical Transport Corps:-
"Mrs Mabel Quinian, the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs Samuel Froud, has been called upon to bear great sorrow by the death of her husband, Warrant Officer Frederick W. Quinian, a member of the Mechanical Transport Corps. The deceased, who was a native of Alderney, joined the Army in 1908, and went out to France at the outbreak of war, being at the retreat from Mons, the Medal for which has been awarded him, as well as the Meritorious Service Medal.
He was home about six weeks ago, but after his return he developed pnueumonia and after ten days' illness, passed away in hospital at Roeun. He was only 28 years of age, and the deepest sympathy is expressed for Mrs. Quinian and her little 3 1/2 year old by.
The deceased was held in the highest respect by every one, and is additionally sad to feel that after having gone through all the terrible period of the war he should succumb to an illness within four days of the Armistice, death taking place on November 7th. He was an excellent shot, being the possessor of cross rifles, and on one occasion he was in the 80's for the King's Cup at Bisley."
