Frederick Bingham was the son of Samuel and Jane Bingham of 56 Attwood Street, Halesowen. He enlisted in the Royal Field Artillery and was serving in C Battery of the 87th Brigade in 1918. This was in the 29th Division which also included the 4th Worcesters. They faced the German Spring offensives with trepidation and when the second offensive broke on the 9th April the British troops were forced into a long retreat. Fierce fighting around Neuve Eglise left many casualties, including Gunner Frederick Bingham. He was 20 years of age and is buried in Godewaersvelde Cemetery (I M 29). He is commemorated on the Halesowen Memorial.
