Story: Frederick George Haskell was born in Donhead St. Andrew, Wiltshire, during 1884 and baptised there on 20 Nov 1884 the son of Charles Haskell and Mary Jane Haskell (nee Morgan). He lived his early life in Donhead St. Andrew until by 1911 the family had moved to Cocking Hill, Midhurst, Sussex. He had enlisted on 2 Sep 1914 and was posted to the 7th Battalion of the Royal Sussex Regiment as a Private (Service No. 996). It soon became obvious that he would not make an efficient soldier due to heart problems and was duly discharged on 12 Oct 1914. No other information about his life has been found. His brother, Walter Joseph Haskell, served in the Royal Navy during the conflict.
