On 16 November 1914, Frederick was commissioned into the Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment) and joined the 9th Battalion. The 9th battalion landed at Suvla Bay on the night of 6/7th August. The 7th was a day of frustration for the officers and men who had expected to attack immediately. However, there was a delay allowing the enemy to make preparations for the allied attack which was made by the 11th (9th Battalion's Division) and 13th Divisions. At some point during the day Frederick was killed. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Helles Memorial Gallipoli.
