Aston, Frederick Charles (King’s Own Rifles)
Shortly after Frederick and his regiment were evauated out of North Africa, he was commissioned in his Guards unit, rising quickly through field promotions, to the rank of captain. He was one of he first British officers entering both Bergen Belsen and Dakow concentration camps. These latter experiences may have disturbed Frederick more than he would admit. After the war, he became an alcholic and was able to hide the fact long enough to re-enlist as a comissioned officer with the King's Own Rifles. This regiment was sent to Africa (Kenya) where Frederick's alchoholism became apparant, and he was eventiually asked to resign his commission. This may have prven too much for Frederick, for on returning to England,he took a room in a local boarding house and the, one night, while heavily intoxicated, returned to his room, closed the windows, sealed the door, and turned on a small gas stove and went to sleep - forever. 1912-1952
