  • I happened upon your website by chance when researching my mother Jane Rose/Bendall's history. Her uncle, who came from Suffolk was called Fritz Bendall. Being illegitimate and sent away to school etc, my mother knew very little about her family and lost contact with them. However, she wrote in her memoirs that her uncle, who lived at the same time as FWD Bendall, became a colonel and had a daughter Eve, so I am wondering if he is the same person? Understandably at that time he might have changed his name 'Fritz' to Frederick. I would be very pleased to contact Eve, see your above correspondent, as she is almost certainly related to me.

  • Eve, it was probably your father who played for Ipswich, at that time, the team was mainly made up from OI`s and he only played occasionaly- probably when back from Cambridge to play cricket for the OI`s.

  • The man described by A Ross was my father and this description is accurate; I doubt if he was the Ipswich Town footballer; from 1901 - 04 he was at Cambridge University and there he played cricket and rugby. I wish I could say he was the `pride of Anglia` but dont think he was!

  • Possibly this man?

    Frederick William Duffield Bendall, born Manningtree, Essex. Educated Ipswich School and Selwyn College, Cambridge.

    Served in World War One at Gallipoli, September 1915. London Regiment attached 8th Battalion Middlesex Regiment. Also served in Malta, the Sudan & France (wounded).

    Between the wars he worked for the Ministry of Education and in 1940 was appointed Director of Army Education remaining in this post until 1942. He died at his home near Alresford, Hampshire on 15/12/1953.

    May have been the FWD Bendall who wrote a poem from WW1 that has been included in a number of books of World War One poetry. the poem was called `The Outrance`

  • A former pupil of Ipswich School, who also captained their cricket side
