TURNER, Frederick (1898-?) – Army Veterinary Corps

PS-TURNER%20Frederick.pngPrivate Frederick Turner (1898-?) was born in Murcot, the eldest son and second of eight children of Robert and Fanny Turner.  The family moved to Wickhamford about 1909.  In 1911 they were living at the present 52 Pitchers Hill.  Frederick is not related to the other Turner listed in this article. 

A reference to Frederick’s army service occurs in a list of absentee voters on the electoral roll of Wickhamford in 1919.  There he is recorded as in the Army Veterinary Corps (No 20506).  Only the record of his medals award survives and he was given the Victory and British War medals and this document states that he was also in the Army Service Corps (No M/428865) at some stage. The Badsey Parish Magazine  for November 1917 records that Pte F. Turner "had a second attack of fever at Salonika but is now convalescent".
