Regimental Number: 101099
Branch: 31st Battalion
Fred was born in Clodden, Ontario on July 5, 1894. It is likely, however, that he lied about his age at enlistment; according to his service file, he stated at some point that he would actually be turning 19 in July of 1918. In this case, Fred would have been born in 1899. He was living in the South Peace at the time of his enlistment in July of 1915. Fred received gunshot wounds to the head on September 19, 1916 and suffered from compound fractures in his skull. He had shell shock, but later recovered. At some point after the war, he married Mary. Fred died in Edmonton on December 4, 1957.
