In around 1910 it is believed that Fred went to work with horses in Ireland, but we have no details. When war broke out in 1914,
he joined up, serving with the 16th Lancers, 4th Brigade, 2nd Cavalry Division.

He was wounded at Amiens on March 28 1918 and sent home, eventually ending up at the Fern Hill Auxiliary Military Hospital, Bacup,
where Martha Carlton was employed as a nurse.
