Frederick Butcher

A young Trowbridge lad to lose his life was Frederick Butcher, aged only 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. Butcher, 58 Mortimer Street. He was transferred from boy service to H.M.S. Black Prince a few weeks before the war broke out. Before joining the Navy he worked for Messrs. Yates, having been a scholar at Trinity School prior to that. Three brothers are serving in the Army.
