Early Life :Born late 1885 to father Frederick James and mother Charlotte Ellen at Bolton, Lancashire. Later of Inglewood, Bushey. Like his father, he became a solictor.
- The First World War 1914-1918, World-wide.
|Unit / Ship / Est.: Honourable Artillery Company|
|Action : France & Flanders|
France & Flanders covers all the dates and corresponding locations which are outside the official battle nomenclature dates on the Western Front. Therefore the actions in which these men died could be considered 'normal' trench duty - the daily attrition losses which were an everyday fact of duty on the Western Front.
His service record shows the full detail of his injuries, having received a gunshot wound to the face below the right eye on 9th February, 1915 near Hammel.
Frederick Was discharged on the 19th June 1915 at the London Depot, "being no longer physically fit for war service". KRs Para 392 XVI. The discharge note that his military character was "V.Good", going on further to say: "This man's character during his service with the Colours has been exemplary." He was awarded the Silver War Badge (No. 5138).
His will is accessible through the WW1 Army Pension Records and shows it dated 6th August 1915. It would seem that Frederick was less certain of his future, and leads to the belief that 3 years following his injuries in France, he died at Inglewood, Bushey. He left £6203 3s. 6d.
For his service, Frederick was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal, which were sent to his father.
