 he signed up underage  only 15 into the Cheshire regiment     said he was gassed and his mother who i called ninnie got  him  out after spending time in France and Salonika
 he was still underage  when he signed up again aged 16+ into  the Manchester regiment,i like thousands of other sons and grandsons i admire them deeply              and i thank everyone who as served in the armed forces in war and peace my sincere thanks. to the FAMILY'S of crews  and pals who served along side my family of RODAWAY'S
         I THANK THEM ALL.

  my great-grandfather.                

         HIGH WOOD  2010, Frederick was killed in one of these fields      august 1916

4th Battalion (Extra Reserve). 98th Brigade, 33rd Division:

Relieved 1/9th Royal Scots south- east side of Mametz Wood (6/8). To Fricourt Wood (7/8), front line south corner of High Wood (13/8), Bazentin-le-Grand (14/8) - 2 companies in trenches north-east of village. To front line (17/8). 'B' and 'D' Companies attacked (18/8) - 'C' company in support - 'A' in reserve. Objective Wood Lane - War Diary records 'survivors came in at dusk.' Casualties - 227. War Diary entry for (18/8) also records 'One man to base under age.' Relieved by 1st Cameronians and to Mametz Wood (19/8). Later to position south of Fricourt Wood. To Mametz Wood in divisional reserve (24/8), Carlton Trench north of Bazentin-le-Grand (25/8). In support of 1st Middlesex and 2nd Argyll and Sutherland at front line - working party dug communication trench to join up battalions. Relieved and to bivouacs north of Dernancourt (30/8).

18th August 1916
Troops moved into position on the night of the 17th and morning of the 18th of August, and a methodical British barrage pounded High Wood for 26 hours before the infantry attack at 2.45 p.m. on the 18th.

The 4th Kings Liverpool and 4th Suffolks were to attack Wood Lane. None of the former even reached Wood Lane, due to the German barrage and fire from the well-defended German positions. Some Suffolks did reach Wood Lane, but were forced out.

In High Wood itself, the 2nd Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders attacked, but suffered from the British bombardment, which also damaged the flame-throwers, and the 'pipe-pushers' did not work as hoped. However the Highlanders advanced, and despite losses from machine-gun fire, some did reach the German trenches - but again could not hold on there.

Whilst there was some success to the north-west of the wood, where the 1st Loyal North Lancs gained and held some trenches, once again there was little success in High Wood itself.

Over the next few days there were some skirmishes, and on the 24th of August a smoke screen and machine gun covering fire helped men of the 100th Brigade take trenches near Wood Lane. The covering machine gun fire was coordinated by then Captain G.S. Hutchison, who later wrote Pilgrimage, in which he also described his experiences during the 14th and 15th of July attacks on High Wood, as well as his return to the spot several years after the War.


FREDERICK  enlisted  on 1 November 1915 as No 5015
in the 8th (Territorial) Battalion of the King's (Liverpool) Regt. He crossed
to France on an unknown date after 31/12/15 and was subsequently transferred to
4 KLR (which was a Service Battalion)  on the  28 July 1916                                      with 100 other's drafted in from the 8th battalion Liverpool Irish and 
others from the 24th Infantry Base Depot   and 7th battalion

.As his number remained a TF one he kept the terms of his original enlistment.  In early 1917, and after his death on 18 August 1916 he was renumbered to 307255(a number which is also associated with

8 KLR). This is unusual as men were usually only kept on the books if they were
reported as missing - this includes wounded and missing . If this is indeed the
case it is likely that his remains were found sometime after his death, ie
after early 1917. and buried in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery Plot XIII, Row E,
Grave 1. What is certain is that there was insufficient time to move him to one
of the large Base Hospitals on the coast suggesting that he was fatally wounded
on or just prior to 18 August.

Thanks to to the CWGC who are now listing The record details of individuals who were originally buried in smaller or isolated cemeteries, but who, at a later date, were exhumed and reburied in war cemeteries. The concentration of cemeteries allowed otherwise unmaintainable graves to be moved into established war grave cemeteries where the Commission could ensure proper commemoration. and listing the grid position's the bodies where found  THE BLACk SPOT shows where Frederick was found the last two number's 3 and 9, the first the 3 should be on the horizontal line and the last number the 9 on the vertical line,

 ROYAL FIELD ARTILLERY  "D" BTY 23rd BDE
23rd Brigade Royal Field Artillery was a brigade of the Royal Field Artillery which served in the First World War.
It was originally formed with 107th, 108th and 109th Batteries, and attached to 3rd Division. In August 1914 it mobilised and was sent to the Continent with the British Expeditionary Force, where it saw service with 3rd Division until 1917. 109th Battery left the brigade in mid-1916, and was replaced by a new D Battery, formed from a section of 86th (Howitzer) Battery and a section of 128th (Howitzer) Battery.
In 1917 it was withdrawn from 3rd Division, to operate under higher unit control, and served out the rest of the war in this role.
One of the first British formations to move to France, the 3rd Division remained on the Western Front throughout the war. It took part in most of the major actions,

The Battle of Flers-Courcelette, 15 - 22 September 1916
The Battle of Flers-Courcelette, was a battle within the Franco-British Somme Offensive which took place in the summer and autumn of 1916. Launched on the 15th of September 1916 the battle went on for one week. Flers-Courcelette began with the overall objective of cutting a hole in the German line by using massed artillery and infantry attacks. This hole would then be exploited with the use of cavalry. It was the third and final large-scale offensive mounted by the British Army during the Battle of the Somme. By its conclusion on September 22, the strategic objective of a breakthrough had not been achieved; however tactical gains were made in the capture of the villages of Courcelette, Martinpuich and Flers. In some places, the front lines were advanced by over 1.2 miles (2 kilometres) by the Allied attacks.
The battle is significant for the first use of the tank in warfare. It also marked the debut of the Canadian and New Zealand Divisions on the Somme battlefield.

The Guards Division made considerable headway, advancing 2,000 yards, but they were stopped short of their ultimate objective, the village of Lesbœufs. To take the remaining objectives, the British Fourth Army launched the Battle of Morval on 25 September.

The history of 28th Division

As regular units from the further garrisons of Empire arrived back in England, many having waited until a Territorial unit had gone out to replace them, they were formed up into three Divisions, numbered 27th to 29th. The 28th was formed at Hursley, Pitt Hill and Magdalen Hill Camps near Winchester in December 1914 - January 1915 and was rushed as a much-needed reinforcement to France. Shortage of some types of units were filled by Territorial units taken from other Divisions. The units of the Division embarked at Southampton and landed at Le Havre on 16-19 January 1915 and then moved to concentrate in the area between Bailleul and Hazebrouck. The Division subsequently took part in these actions:

St Eloi is about 5 miles south of Ypres and the area of interest is from the town to the canal heading east. The trenches were lettered from M to T starting at St Eloi and P being near to the western angle of Triangular Wood. The trenches, though in communication, were not continuous and the gaps between them were anything up to 150 yards, making it impossible to walk round the trench line.

the 3rd Middlesex were in M Trench, and “B” and “C” Companies (Middlesex) occupied the new “P” and “O” trenches as the Germans still held the original “O” Trench and a portion of the original "P" Trench.

According to “History of the East Surrey Regiment”
Three platoons of “B” Company and Two of “C” Company of the 2nd Batt ES were with the 3rd Batt Middlesex Regt in action at M trench close to St Eloi.
13-15th: 4 officers killed, 3 wounded; 44 OR killed, 62 wounded; 156 OR missing.     62 men of the 3 battalion died that day and only one a PTE E GIBBINS is buried in a known grave,all the rest are named on the MENIN GATE MEMORIAL.
