The D-Day veteran left home at the age of 16 to join the Marines but because he was too young he had to settle for the Marine Cadets until he became of age.
He then went on to become a Coxwain assigned to the SS Empire Cutlass and he was successfully involved in four trips delivering British soldiers to Sword Beach on D-Day.
He joined in 1943 where he served for six years and then he left for a year before joining back up in 1950 until 1966.
Frederick was part of the Royal Marines 41, 42, 43, and 45 Commando, which took part in the Normandy landings.
David Harvey, Frederick’s son, said: “He was a very strong, strict person. He didn’t take anything from anyone, he was a very good person.
"He went to join the Marines so they had to make him a Marine Cadet and then he became a Marine when he was 18.

Frederick was father to David, Sharon, Vivien and Allan all of whom are proud of their dad and everything that he achieved over his lifetime.
