  1. Fred did not serve abroad with the Border Regiment but he did with the Liverpool Regiment.
  2. The 68th Labour Company was formed as the 3rd Infantry Labour Company Kings Liverpool Regiment, on 17 February 1917. They served in various locations of the Western Front in France. Sometime during the following nine months Fred was transferred to 754th Area Employment Company. He kept the same service number as both units came under the Labour Corp, members of which were always buried with reference to their original regiment. The 754th also operated in various locations of the Western Front as different size groups as required. On 29 April 1918 they were in Arques, then on 11 May 1918 they were sent to St Germain au Mont D'or. This was No.2 Rest Camp and Hospital and the place where Fred died 16 July 1918.
