Gunner Frank Albert Coveney

b1887 Cheriton, Kent

d 1969 Folkestone, Kent

QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT

WHERE RIGHT & GLORY LEAD US

Frank was a gunner in the Royal Field Artillery and was awarded the British Medal & the Victory Medal.

Unfortunately his military records appear to be amongst the 60% that were destroyed in the bombing of London during WWII, so we shall never know exactly what battles he was involved in.

The Royal Field Artillery was the most numerous arm of the artillery, and was responsible for the medium calibre guns and howitzers deployed close to the front line & was reasonably mobile.  It was organised into Brigades.

49,076 men of the Royal Regiment of Artillery gave their lives between 1914 - 1919, so Frank was lucky to survive, but one wonders how many comrades & friends he’d lost & what nightmares he may have come home with.   One can only hope that life improved dramatically for him.
