Frank is listed as a Lieutenant, Royal Engineers resident at Newcastle-upon-Tyne at his initiation in the period shortly before the war, June 1914. War service is recorded in the contribution record for most of the war, whereafter he continues paying dues to at least 1921. He is recorded on the Lodge Roll of Honour for Barnard, but unsurprisingly not included on the 1921 and 1940 central workings.
