Frederick Charles Farrow BLUNDERFIELD [Parents] [scrapbook] 1-B0459 was born 2 on 11 May 1889 in Adelaide, South Australia. He died 3, 4 on 22 Sep 1948 in Greenslopes Military Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He was buried on 23 Sep 1948 in Mount Thompson Crematorium, Brisbane, Queensland. Frederick married Margaret Ethel KING-K0411 in Est 1920.

Although given the name Frederick at birth, he chose to use the name Charles Farrow.

There is a C Blunderfield listed in the passenger manifest of the ship 'Wyandra' on the 16th December 1912, travelling from Brisbane to Melbourne.

It seems that his brother George wasn't the only 'black sheep' in the family. In November 1914, Charles (the name he chose to use) together with Stephen Noell, carried out an armed robbery near Bundaberg, stealing £1,800. They were soon caught and sentenced, on the 23rd February 1915,  to four year's hard labour. Although their ages are similar, Stephen Noell was a nephew of Charles (the son of Charles Noell and Henrietta Blunderfield). Interestingly, both Charles and Stephen enlisted for the army, in Brisbane, on the 18th December 1915 - perhaps this was a way of getting out of prison. Newspaper cuttings, police and prison records, give a full account of the robbery and can be seen in folder B0459 in the Documents Archive (Button on Home Page).

On joining the army, Charles was assigned to an Engineer Regiment (Sapper) but later became a Driver. He spent most of his training in the Sydney area, including Milson Island on the Hawkesbury River and at Moore Park. He finally left Sydney on the 30th September 1916, aboard HMAT Aeneas bound for Plymouth, arriving almost 7 weeks later, on the 19th November. After further training at Parkhouse Depot, he was posted to France, crossing the Channel to Rouelles on the 29th May 1917. On the 13th December 1917 he was admitted to hospital in Etaples suffering from Pthisis (Tuberculosis) and invalided back to England a few days later. He appears to have remained in England, suffering further bouts of TB and undertaking light duties as a driver with AIF Headquarters.

He was granted leave for a week between the 30th January 1920 and the 6th of February - this could have been when he married, although there is no record in the GRO Indexes (perhaps he was married at the Australian High Commission)

At the beginning of May 1920, he was due to return to Australia but was given leave, subject to recall, possibly because his wife was expecting their first child. Unfortunately, Charles received orders and embarked on the 20th May - Margaret gave birth to Stephen Charles Blunderfield on the 23rd May but the child died not long after this.

Charles's Army Service Records can be viewed in Folder B0459 in the 'Document Archive' (button on the Home Page).
