Son of William and Martha Adam, of Lyndholm, Kidderminster.

Wartime Service

He was born in November 1896 end his father was Mr W. Adam of "Lynholm" at Kidderminster. He attended Caldicott School in Hitchin, leaving in 1910: Frank left the School in July 1910 end went to the Leys at Cambridge. He was commissioned and served in the Rifle Brigade. Official records state that he was in the 6th Battalion of the Brigade but the 3rd Battalion is more likely. His death was at the end of the great German offensive which had started in March 1918 and was just days before the British counter-offensive commenced. He died of wounds on the 16th July 1918 aged 21 years. He is buried at Bully-Graney Communal Cemetery British Extension east of Loos in France.

Additional Information

Frank was not recorded on the memorial, but is an ‘old boy’ of the school, so that is his connection to Hitchin. *1 This memorial (names only) was removed to Caldicott School, Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire, when the school moved to that site.
