Story: Frederick George London was born in Shaftesbury, Dorset, on 25th November 1888 and baptised at Holy Trinity Church on 20th January 1889, the son of Charles Lill London and Mary Ann London (née Mills). The family lived in and around Shaftesbury during Frederick's early years. He enlisted on 16th November 1914 and joined the Royal Army Service Corps (2nd Railway Transport Division, 66th Battery) rising in time to the rank of Sergeant (Service No. T/3/028608). He served in France and Flanders and towards the end of his time had broken a foot falling off a horse which required substantial hospital treatment and for which there was a Board of Enquiry. He was discharged on 9th November 1919 and was awarded the Victory and British War medals as well as the 1914/15 Star. He then lived on Tout Hill, Shaftesbury. He married Alice Maud Fudge in 1925 in the Lymington Registry Area, Hampshire. There appeared to be no children of the marriage. By the 1939 Register they were living at Britton Cottages, Brockenhurst, Hampshire, and Frederick was working as a groom. He died in 1950 in the New Forest Registration Area, Hampshire. Frederick's brothers, Charles Lill London and Jasper Hopkins London, also served in the conflict. All their names appeared on a Roll of Honour published in the St. James' Church Parish Magazine in Nov 1918.
