Emma Sarah BODEKER
115 Fred emigrated from England to Canada on April 3rd, 1912 at 9:00 p.m. aboard the 'Royal Edward', a ship of the Royal Line, departing out of Bristol and bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on contract ticket number 11229. He was listed on the passenger manifest as being aged 24, a farm labourer and not accompanied by a spouse. With him on the voyage, though, was his sister Ada Jane who is recorded by her pet name "Lily" Bodeker, aged 23, a domestic, also not accompanied by a spouse. She sailed under contract ticket number 11228. It is interesting to note that the remainder of the Bodeker family, Fred's mother and siblings, emigrated out of England aboard the 'Victorian', a ship of the Allan Line, on 5 July 1912 at 9:00 p.m. departing out of Liverpool and bound for Quebec City and Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Fred's Attestation Paper was sworn on 13 March 1916 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He was assigned service #916308 and attached to the 198th Battalion Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force. Address at time of enlistment was West Hill, Ontario. During the course of his short enlistment, the family moved several times, each new address being noted on the first page of Fred's Attestation Paper: 647 Dundas Street West, then to 14 Randolph Avenue and finally to 251 Silverthorne Avenue, all in Toronto. Fred's sister, Ada Jane "Lillian" Owlett was still living with her family at the Silverthorne Avenue address as late as the 1960s and I remember having visited there on several occasions. I always remarked on how close together the houses were. One could, quite literally, reach out and touch the brick of the neighbour's house from the upstairs bathroom window of Aunt Lil's house.

Fred's medical certificate provides the following in the way of a physical description:
5' 10-3/4" tall with a chest when fully expanded of 39". Range of chest expansion 5". Weight 158 pounds. Complexion fresh, eyes blue and hair fair. Physical development was marked as "good" and small-pox marks as "nil". He had 5 vaccination marks on his left arm and indicated that his last vaccination was administered during 1912. There were no marks indicating congenital peculiarities or previous disease and nil slight defects. Fred was given a general vaccination on 19 June 1916 and anti-typhoid inoculations on 6 June, 13 June, 20 July and 17 August 1916. Fred had three tattoos on his right arm and therefore, it would be highly unlikely that he could have been misidentified as having been killed in action: a girl's head; a sailor and girl's head; and clasped hands with heart.

Fred was deployed on the 25th of March 1917 via Halifax aboard the Metagama arriving at Liverpool, England on the 7th of April. He was received at Otterpool Camp that same day and appointed to the post of Lance Corporal with pay. He had with him a credit of his service pay of $9.70. From the date of his arrival until and including 29 April 1917 Fred's wages were paid at the rate of CAN$1.05 per day. On 30 April 1917 his wage increased to CAN$1.15 per day. Throughout the course of his service $20.00 of his monthly pay had been assigned to his mother, in addition to which she also received a month separation allowance of CAN$20.00. Fred received the remainder of his monthly wages while serving in the field and occassionally additional small amounts of wages although the reasons for those payments are not stated on his pay records.

On 22 May 1917 Fred was moved to Witley Camp where his rank reverted to permanent grade, Private. From his Active Service paper we learned that he had been on command placed in the Mytchett Intelligence Course returning to Witley Camp on the 6th of June that same year.

On 1 March 1918 Fred was transferred from the 198th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force to the command of the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles (British Columbia) unit being deployed to France on 3 March 1918 and arriving at camp, there, two days later on 5 March 1918. It was with this unit that he served in France until the time of his death on Wednesday, 28 August 1918.

Fred arrived at his first overseas destination at 2:45 p.m. on a clear and cold day. The war diary for that day records that 100 reinforcements from the 198th Battalion (Toronto) had arrived. One officer and 50 other ranks were detailed for work on Gladys Trench during the day while the left support Company continued working to improve and strengthen the Chaudiere defences. What appeared to be Fred's first day and first taste of army life on the battle field was an unusually calm, quiet and civilized day.

The second day, though, was to be much different. By 3:30 a.m. the following morning gas attacks had been quite heavy, inflicting fairly heavy casualties amongst the troops. Enemy planes were flying and active throughout the morning buzzing both sides of the unit. One enemy plane was shot down behind their lines at T.11.D. The reinforcements from the 198th Battalion were moved into the forward area of the fighting at approximately 6:30 p.m.. From its ranks were 8 officers and 200 other ranks placed under the direction of army engineers to continue the work on Gladys, Keane and Doris trenches and the wiring of the Blue Line.

During the evening of the 6th, 28 Russian recruits were sent out from the front line to the Transport line in the rear in accordance with the latest despatch issued by the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade calling for surveillance of the Russians.

The weather during the first two weeks of Fred's service was bright and reasonably clear but cold. Haze hampered enemy observation on only a few occasions. The troops were subjected to occasional fierce gas attacks and were called upon to relieve the 5th C.M.R. on two occasions at the front line at Mericourt. Following the second relief exercise, Fred's unit was redirected and employed on working parties, improving the trenches and digging new communication trenches from New Brunswick trench to Toper trench. On March 20th the battalion was relieved from the front by the 116th Canadian Batallion. At 7:30 that evening the men marched to Zivy Siding and embarked by train for Suburban Camp, Villiers au Bois arriving there in at 1:30 a.m. the following morning. Blessedly, the casualties for the unit had been very light from February 19th to March 20th with only 1 soldier having been killed in action. Six men were wounded, 8 had been subjected to serious gas attacks, and Captain S. J. Redpath, although wounded, was still on duty. The 21st of March was the first day since arriving in France that Fred would have been given an opportunity to bathe and receive his pay. The remainder of that day, according to the War Diary for the unit, records that it had been spent "cleaning up". The remainder of the war, I fear, was not to be so quietly spent for Fred. At 1:00 p.m. March 22nd the battalion was again on the move, marching to Stewart Camp, Ecurie where they arrived at 4:30 p.m. later that day.

His sister, Minnie Winifred, my grandmother, always talked of her brother perhaps having lived out the war in hiding and denying his death. However, with the amount and uniqueness of tattoos Fred had, one can hardly think that a mistake would have been made in the identification of his body. I think the family was greatly affected by the sad news and that his death somehow changed each of sisters and his mother. The news of Fred's death must have come as a terrible shock to the family, particularly his mother. His service file contains a card on which is written the text of the telegraph cable sent to Ann. It states, very flatly, "K. in A. Aug. 28th". The cable was dated on Monday, 9 September 1918, some 12 days after the fact and 5 days following the official report of Fred's death by the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles on 4 September 1918.

It is known that his mother made several trips between Canada and England while Fred was stationed in England before his deployment to France. At the time that Fred was deployed to France, his mother and his one sister, Edith Sharp with family in tow, returned to live in England. After the war, it is known that his mother made several trips to the location in France.

Fred's Will left everything to his mother, Annie Brown in October 1916 of 649 Dundas Street and later of 14 Randolph Avenue, Toronto.

In possession of Susan Young are the two lapel pins from Fred's uniform that had been sent to his mother, along with his Bible. Somehow the two lapel pins had ended up in the possession of Edith McAloney. She showed them to me many years ago (while she was still hairdressing) saying that they were her husband's medals. I recognized them instantly as being Fred's uniform lapel pins as they say "Canadian Buffs" across the front of them. When I advised my aunt that her husband would have been far too old to have taken part inthe First World War and that it wouldn't have been enlistment with the Canadian Buffs she thrust them into my hand and said, "Here, then, you keep them!". In my naiveity I had shattered in a brief 7-minute conversation a long-held and desparately cleved to belief that my aunt had held of her long-dead husband. One of the pins bears a damaged right-hand edge in that is has been bent inwards toward the clasp at a 45 degree angle. I suspect that the pin had been positioned on his left uniform lapel and that it had been hit by the bullet that ended Fred's life. Based on the damage on the pin and the position of the pin on Fred's uniform, it is fairly easy to reconstruct the trajectory that the bullit took as it pierced through Fred's body. Quickly likely the bullett would have entered his body at a point somewhere between his left jugular vein and his upper heart chamber.

Fred's mother, in addition to receiving the few meagre personal effects, also received the service plaque, the medals, and a war service gratuity of CAN$180.00 that was routinely paid out to the dependents of deceased soldiers. That payment was made to her by cheque number G1902814 dated 17 September 1920. It had been sent to the Silverthorne address but by that time Ann had already made the move back to Maidstone, Kent, England and was living at the Rose Inn on Wheeler Street, an establishment of which her daughter and son-in-law were landlords. Fred's pay throughout the time of his service was $20.00 per month, most of which had been assigned by him to his mother.

There are two medals in the possession of Susan Young, one of which says "For Honourable Service" around the perimeter of a circle containing a white background with a crown faced in red underneath of which is written "Canada" and the crown and Canada is supported by three maple leafs whose three stems, together, form a small protusion at the bottom of the medal. On the reverse is the number 7957 and an inscription warning about imprisonment for misuse of the medal. The second medal has not been engraved in any fashion. It is a plain gold sheild surrounded by a circular dental-like moulding. At the top of the medal appears to be a very large interpretative letter "v" inside the bottom apex of which is a sheaf of wheat. On the reverse there are the hallmarks and nothing more. I have no idea if the two medals described here had been awarded posthumously to Fred or another relative. The only other person they could have been awarded to was Victor John Hill, Fred's brother-in-law and the person with whom Fred had enlisted in the army in Toronto.

The two medals that Fred were awarded were the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. By virtue of his late enlistment, Fred was not eligible for the 1914-15 Star medal. I have added a photograph to the Canadian Virtual War Memorial project at:

118 Ruth Busbridge's grandfather was Charles Horatio Bodeker who was only 1 month old when Heinrich Wilhelm Michel Bodeker died so only knew what his mother told him..... The story goes that Heinrich Wilhelm Michel fled to England after he killed a man "accidently" in a duel. His father was a Count and a merchant and had links with Helgoland. Heinrich Wilhelm Michel had been to University, possibly in Hamburg, and could speak 4 languages. His English was perfect. Ruth has a letter which he wrote to his daughter. She also has some "bits" which she took from a very old Bible.
Heinrich Wilhelm Michael Bodeker was buried at Brookwood Cemetery on 30 Aug 1864 - register no 28828 - died at 20 Alfred Place, St George Southwark - aged 48 - F Owston cemetery anglican priest officiated and he received a pauper class burial. The agreements with London parishes varied slightly but generaly a pauper burial cost the parish about 15 shillings which included coffin transport to the Necropolis station in London, fare for the coffin and one mourner to Brookwood, burial and burial service in the cemetery.

121 While it is still unknown who the parents or spouse were of this Wilhelm Bodeker, the following details come from a baptismal certificate that had been found in the pages of a church register in London, England and are included here as the area of Germany from where our Bodeker family is said to have its roots is very close to the area mentioned in this certificate:

Certificate Issued by St. Nicholas Church, Hamburg, Germany

Child: Catherina Christina, born 8 Feb 1818 and chr 21 Feb 1819 [there is note saying that she married during 1847 but no place is recorded]

Father: Johann Wilhelm Bodeker, wodehandler, of Ottensen-by-Altonan, Hamburg
Mother: Marie Marguerita Minezolet, of Hamburg
Witnesses/Godparents: Catherina Bodeker and Christina Minezolet
St. Nicholas Church, Hamburg
With the founding of the Nikolai settlement and a harbor on the Alster in the 11th century, a chapel dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of sailors, was erected. This wood building was the second church in Hamburg, after the Cathedral of Hamburg.
In 1335, some years before the onslaught of the Black Death , construction on a new brick building began. The structure was to be a three-naved hall church in the typical North German Brick Gothic style. This building stood until the middle of the 19th century, undergoing changes, expansions, and withstanding several partial destructions. The tower, which was erected in 1517, burned down in 1589. The tower built to replace it collapsed in 1644. The last tower of the old Nikolai church was designed by Peter Marquardt . The Marquardt tower had a height of 122 meters and with its characteristic dome was a landmark of the city and jewel of its skyline.
As the center of one of the four Hamburg parishes, Nikolai's church was heavily involved in all the theological debates that were fought out in the city, especially during the Reformation . After the minister Henning Kissenbrügge had resigned in 1524, the residents chose as minister Johannes Bugenhagen, a profiled Reformer and confidant to Martin Luther . The conservative city council was able to prevent his appointment by making Kissenbrügge stay. However, they could not stop the general wave of elected Lutheran ministers in Hamburg; in St. Nikolai, Johann Zegenhagen was appointed after Kissenbrügge's final departure. The Reformation was completed peacefully, and in 1528 Bugenhagen appeared in Hamburg and became the preacher at St. Nikolai. He is known for establshing a church order in Hamburg which regulated finances and other church affairs such as the school curriculum. This order continued for 200 years.
The old Nikolaikirche was the first large public building to burn in the great fire of May 1842. The destruction of the Nikolaikirche is described by chroniclers as a particularly moving event for the citizens. It was the first large building to burn, and was an indication of how catastrophic the fire would become. On 5 May the noon service held by preacher Wendt, who stood in for the minister Carl Moenckeberg, had to be cut short and ended with an intercessory prayer for the saving of the church. One obviously did not count on the loss of the church as most art treasures were not saved.
The spire was engulfed by the fire at about four o'clock in the afternoon. Despite desperate efforts, it was not possible to contain the fire due to the equipment of the day, which did not allow water to be carried in sufficient quantity to the heights of the tower. It finally collapsed, setting the nave on fire and burning it completely.

Neo-gothic construction

Shortly after the fire, the church was rebuilt again. In 1843, a so-called Shilling Collection was started, and in 1844 there was an architectural competition, won by the architect Gottfried Semper (a native of nearby Altona ) with the draft of a Roman domed structure. His design, however, was not realized, as it did not fit into Hamburg’s townscape and shortly before this time, the construction of the mediaeval Cologne cathedral in 1842 had led to a Gothic revival in Germany. Hamburg’s medieval cathedral had been demolished in 1805.
The English architect George Gilbert Scott , who was an expert for the restoration of medieval churches and an advocate of the gothic architectural style, was commissioned to devise a new design. He designed an 86 meter-long nave , with a 28 meter-high vault. The architecture was strongly influenced by French and English gothic styles, though the pointed spire is typically German. The amount of sculptures made from sandstone in the interior and on the spire was unusual. The new church was built to the southeast, a short distance from the old location, where the Neue Burg (New Castle) had once stood. The construction started in 1846, and on 27 September 1863 the church was consecrated. The 147.3 meter-high spire was finished in 1874. At that time, the Nikolaikirche was the highest building in the world until the completion of the cathedral of Rouen in 1876. Second to the TV tower, the Nikolaiturm is still the second highest building in Hamburg.

World War II
The clearly visible spire of the Nikolaikirche served as a goal and orientation marker for the pilots of the Allied Air Forces during the extensive air raids on Hamburg. On 28 July the church was heavily damaged by aerial bombs. The roof collapsed and the interior of the nave suffered heavy damage. The walls began to show cracks, yet they as well as the spire, did not collapse.

[After World War II
The basic structure of the gothic church remained intact to a large extent and reconstruction was a realistic option. Nevertheless, it was decided to demolish the nave while leaving the spire untouched. As the surrounding of the church was no longer a residential area, a new St. Nikolai was built in the district of Harvestehude . In 1951 the nave was finally demolished and the rubble was partially used for the reinforcement of the banks of the river Elbe.
The loss of a valuable gothic revival architectural monument was regretted by many, but after the war there were other priorities as far as reconstruction was concerned. Contrary to the Michaeliskirche the Nikolaikirche was not regarded as one of Hamburg’s important landmarks.
The spire and some remainders of the wall were preserved as a memorial against the war, but were not cared for for several decades and they consequently gradually decayed. This changed in 1987, when the Rettet die Nikolaikirche e.V. foundation began to restore the existing fabric of the building and erected a so-called "place of encounters" (a room for events and exhibitions) in the crypt. It attempts to salvage the pieces of rubble that were removed in 1951, and was, for example, able to reclaim some rubble from the destroyed nave from the river Elbe in November 2000. A reconstruction of the church, as it was done with the Frauenkirche in Dresden , is not intended. However, a 51-bell carillon was installed in 1993 as a memorial.
Since 1 September an elevator has taken visitors to a 75.3 metre-high platform inside the spire to enjoy history panels and a panoramic view over Hamburg and in particular the nearby Speicherstadt (City of Warehouses).

Born in Yattendon in Berkshire, Bridges was the son of Robert Bridges, later Poet Laureate, and Mary Monica Waterhouse, daughter of the architect Alfred Waterhouse. He was educated at Eton and Magdalen College, Oxford. Bridges then fought in the First World War, achieved the rank of Captain and was awarded the Military Cross.
He later joined the Civil Service and in 1938 he was appointed Cabinet Secretary, succeeding Sir Maurice Hankey. Bridges remained in this post until 1946, when he was made Permanent Secretary to the Treasury, a position he held until 1956. He was invested a Privy Counsellor in 1953 and in 1957 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Bridges, of Headley in the County of Surrey and of Saint Nicholas at Wade in the County of Kent. In 1965 he was given the additional honour of being made a Knight of the Garter.
After his retirement Lord Bridges notably served as Chancellor of Reading University. Moreover, he was given honorary degrees from several universities and appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society. He also published The State and the Arts, Romanes Lecture for 1958, Oxford, and The Treasury (Oxford University Press, 1964).
Bridges married Katharine Dianthe Farrer, daughter of Thomas Cecil Farrer, 2nd Baron Farrer on 6 June 1922. They had four children:
Hon. Shirley Frances Bridges (b. 1924)
Thomas Edward Bridges, 2nd Baron Bridges (b. 1927) (a diplomat)
Hon. Robert Bridges (b. 1930) (an architect)
Hon. Margaret Evelyn Bridges (b. 1932) (a medieval historian)
Lord Bridges died at Winterfold Heath, Surrey, on 27 August 1969, aged 77. He was succeeded in the barony by his eldest son Thomas, a prominent diplomat who notably served as British Ambassador to Italy from 1983 to 1987.

144 O.M. (1929), M.A., M.B., hon. D. ----., hon. LL.D. St. Andrews, F.R.C.P., Poet Laureate 19--, educ. Eton and Corpus Christi Coll. Oxford.

A poet noted for his technical mastery of prosody and for his sponsorship of the poetry of his friend Gerard Manley Hopkins. Born of a prosperous landed family, Bridges went to Eton College and then to Corpus Christi College, Oxford, where he met Hopkins. His edition of Hopkins' poetry that appeared in 1916 rescued it from obscurity. From 1869 until 1882 Bridges worked as a medical student and physician in London hospitals. In 1884 he married Mary Monica Waterhouse, and he spent the rest of his life in virtually unbroken domestic seclusion, first at Yattendon, Berkshire, then at Boar's Hill, devoting himself almost religiously to poetry, contemplation, and the study of prosody. Although he published several long poems and poetic dramas, his reputation rests upon the lyrics collected in Shorter Poems (1890, 1894). New Verse (1925) contains experiments using a metre based on syllables rather than accents. He used this form for his long philosophical poem The Testament of Beauty, published on his 85th birthday. Bridges was poet laureate from 1913 until his death.
