    Frederick was an original member of the unit, embarking aboard “S.S. ZEALANDIA” on 8 Dec 1941 for Timor as a Private in No 1 Section, “A” Platoon.

     After the campaign on Timor, he embarked with the unit, for Australia aboard the Royal Dutch destroyer “Tjerk Hiddes” on either 11 Dec 1942 or 16 Dec 1942, as the embarkation rolls do not differentiate. 

    After leave and reorganization, he embarked with the unit for New Guinea aboard S.S. “DUNTROON” on 17 Jun 1943 as a Corporal in No 1 Section, “A” Troop.

    Promoted Sergeant and transferred to “Z” Special Force on 24 Aug 1944 where he trained in small boat and raiding and went back to Timor three times.

    He was discharged on 11 Apr 1946.
