Other information

Frederick Kerswell (or Keiswell as he is recorded) is entered twice on the Nominal Roll. The first entry records him as being transferred to 11th (South Hams) Battalion Home Guard on 4th October 1943 but this transfer was cancelled. The second entry records his address as Fancy Cottage, Modbury. His registration number on both entries proves a Marldon address.

In 1939 he is at Stantor Cottages in Marldon and a neighbour of Albert Dameral and Sidney Worth.

He appears to have moved from Marldon to Modbury and became a member of Flete Patrol.
