Frederick Shilvock came from Halesowen where he lived with his wife Clara (later Clara Hall of 220 Rood End Road, Oldbury). He enlisted in the Worcesters and was sent to the 1st Battalion. In 1916 they were closely engaged in the Battle of the Somme and in early 1917 they followed the German army as it retreated to the Hindenburg Line. In the Third Battle of Ypres the Worcesters were at the Battles of Pilkem and Langemarck in August 1917. They were again in the front line when they trudged through the mud and entered the ruins of Passchendaele on the 25th November. The battles were over but the shelling and deaths continued. On the 27th Private Frederick Shilvock was killed in action. He was 40 years of age and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial and the Halesowen Memorial.
