I am trying to get a little light on this man's time in West Africa.
Frederick Henry Wickham Guard click for my fuller notes
He appears to have gone to West Africa some time after 1910
He then found employment on the West African Railways in Sierra Leone
1914 Jul 1. Leaves UK on SS Mendi bound for Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana his profession is "traders assistant"
1914 Aug. Obtained a commission in the West African Field Force soon after the outbreak of hostilities.
1915 Returns to UK on SS Elmina . Boarded at Sierra Leone, travels 1st class and is a surveyor.
His MIC confirms WAFF Lt.
I would be interested in anything on him during his time in West Africa.
He went on to become a Lt.Col in France and Russia, and was Deputy OC of Auxiliaries in Ireland.
