Frederick Thomas Jenner - WWI

At the start of the 1st world war Frederick volunteered for the Armed Forces, which he needn't have done as he had a reserved occupation which would have exempted him from active service had he chosen not to volunteer; and according to his daughter (Florence Eveline Jenner 1901-1994) his wife was not pleased with him going. He was away from home for five years and his job in the army was to drive ammunition to the front lines. After the war ended he settled back into civilian life and the family moved back to Bristol, where he became a Painter and Decorator, and where they had another two children, Arthur and Kenneth Jenner.
