Branch: 9th Battalion

Frederick was born in Ottawa, Ontario on February 20, 1883. He filed on NW 36-70-9-W6 in October of 1914; the following summer he enlisted in the Canadian Army. Frederick served only in England, and on April 7, 1916 was sent back to Canada due to an inflammation of his lungs. Later this was noted as being tuberculosis, though his test results state “no TB found.” Frederick had also sprained his knee by falling out of his hut. In December of 1916 he was discharged, having been found medically unfit. Frederick died on January 6, 1917.
