bullet  Marriage Notes:

[Henry Dustin Auckland.FTW]

Fred was wounded in battle during WW1 and sent to England to recuperate where he met Marie Bodger. Their first son was born in England but when he was 6 months old they came home to NZ in a troop ship (or maybe it was a hospital ship). After a time living with members of the family (with Fred's mother) Marie became restless and homesick so Fred agreed to let her go home to her mother (Mrs Bodger) and if she thought she liked it more in England, he would work and save and go back to the UK. Well not long after the ship left with Marie and little Freddie, now going on two, she found she was pregnant with her 2nd child. Oh dear! Well she stayed with her mother (I don't think things were too rosy as she had two unmarried brothers at home as well and they didn't take kindly to having young children in the house, so when Joyce May was two and Freddie (by this time was four) Marie came back to NZ and finally settled. Her next baby came a few years later, a son George was born in July 1923 Then 14 months later Frank, but he lived only a short time. There is one more daughter Eva Rosetta born 1926. unfortunately Fred (his mother's pride and joy who grew to 6'4" in his sox) went to the Middle East in WW2 and was killed in the battle of El Alamein in 1942 at the age of 24.
