Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hi All,
Frederic J.L. Trench was born 1856/57 in Ireland, he died 20/23 March 1942 [i have two dates of death] at the Hotel de Colonies Monte Carlo, his address is given as The Villa, Isam Montone, France. He served in the 2nd Boer War.
Strange for a man who gave back his decorations during WW1, was living under German Occupation in France during WW2, a story to be told there??
