Biography

Sergeant Frederick John Davies passed through Peterborough East Station on 1 August 1916.  He was serving with the 26th Battalion Middlesex Regiment and was stationed at Flixton Park, Bungay, Suffolk.

Frederick’s service record has not survived, but information from his medal card confirms he served with the 26th Middlesex Public Works Battalion.  He was awarded the British War and Allied Victory Medals.

The 26th (Service) Battalion (3rd Public Works Pioneers) was formed in London on 9 August 1915.  The battalion landed at Le Havre on 2 May 1916.  On 24 August 1916, the battalion landed at Salonika and came under command of the 27th Division as a Pioneer Battalion.  In November 1917 the battalion moved with the Division to Italy but returned to France in March 1918. http://www.longlongtrail.co.uk

It appears that Frederick may have served in France, Salonika and Italy.
