Frederick Ward


Ward, Frederick, enlisted at Ottawa, Ontario, originally from Fulham, London, England. Occupation: Teamster. Military Service: Private, Reg. No. 1761, PPCLI. Attestation Papers. Possible Diary Reference: “On guard with Turner, Ward and Corp. [C.] Spurgeon at chateau,” 2:15 Nov ’15. This identification is uncertain. Pte. A. J. Ward, Reg. No. 1526, and Pte. J. Ward, Reg. No. 1272, were other candidates, as all of them had been with the PPCLI since August 1914. Also, Pte. B. O. Ward Reg. No. 411140, joined the PPCLI in the field on 28 July 1915, so he could have been on guard with Frank on November 15. That makes four Wards who could have been there. Analysis of their individual personnel files may perhaps resolve the issue. According to Hodder-Williams, 355, Pte. Frederick Ward was struck off strength on 1 July 1916.
