Frederick William King: Several years
ago in a case in Mrs L. Slade's loft there were
some old service papers, which she would
like to return to the next of kin. Mr King
was captured at the Battle of Jutland and taken
POW, his family informed presumed killed,
but from other papers there is an invalidity
certificate, medal ribbons and address in
Gillingham, Kent, to which he returned on his
release. Contact Mrs Slade, 20, Minerva
Court, St Johns Road, Bath BA2 6PL.
