At the start of the war in August, 1914, the 7th Dragoon Guards of  the Secunderabad Cavalry Brigade, 2nd Indian Cavalry Division, were in India but they were soon on their way to Europe, landing at Marseilles on 13th October, 1914, from where they moved north to the trenches at Vieille Chapelle and Festubert. Frederick Budgen died from wounds on 27th November and he may have been the NCO that the regimental diary recorded as being mortally wounded on 26th November by ‘friendly’ shrapnel when 150 men moved from billets in Gorre to relieve others in the line at Festubert.
