F Head's letter of Re-Employment



Army form Z16a, a tear off slip from form Z16 that indicated re-employment after the war. It shows that Frederick Head (including details of service) was employed by F Knight (sp) in Rose Street, most likely returning to work as a Plumber, as it was his pre-war occupation.

Frederick Head born in 1878 served in the Royal Corps of Engineers. At his demobilisation in 1919 he was a Lance Corporal in the 334 Road Construction Company and a Road Foreman.

A local man from Mount Pleasant he was married and had a younger brother who also served in the War. His family remained in Wokingham and his grandaughter retains these items and his history.
