Notes
Frederick was born in London, England on September 18, 1897 to Arthur and Helena Hall. He had one older brother, and eventually five younger siblings, two brothers and three sisters. In 1906 his family moved to Kitchener, Ontario, then Berlin. They had belonged to the Church of England and later joined the Church of the Holy Saviour in Waterloo. Frederick became a tinsmith like his father, and was a member of the 24th Grey's Horse militia. On November 6, 1915, at the age of 18, he enlisted in the 118th battalion. It came a day after his older brother Arthur's enlistment. Like his brother, Frederick later transferred to the 10th Canadian Railway Troops. He became a driver, serving 24 months in England, France and Belgium. On March 26, 1919 Frederick was discharged. He moved home to live with his widowed mother in Kitchener - his father had fought and died in Passchendaele. The following year he married Mary McDonald.
