War Grave Wednesday - Frederick George Bennett

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them".
Frederick George Bennett was born in Marlow Buckinghamshire in 1895 to Henry C Bennett, a paper maker in a paper mill and his wife Julia Joyce.
In 1901 Frederick can be found living with his parents and siblings at Temple Cottages, Bisham Berkshire  1911 and Frederick is still living with his parents in Temple Cottages in Bisham.  His occupation in 1911 is listed as a house boy.
Sometime after the outbreak of World War I Frederick enlisted with the Royal Air force, becoming an Air Mechanic 1st Class.  Unfortunately I cannot find any further information about Frederick's war service or how he came to be injured.  Just before Frederick died of is wounds in Cliveden Military Hospital he married Frances Dora Larter in the September of 1918.  Their time together was short as Frederick died on 21st November 1918 aged just 23 years.
