237 Male - Estimated age, 20.
Height, 5 ft. 11 in. Weight, 145lbs.
Hair, sandy; clean shaven.
Marks, shoulders very square.
Buried at Fairview Cemetery, Halifax, N. S.
Wore dark gray suit; letters "F. H." on shirt.
Effects included open face nickel watch and silver chain with match box attached; turquoise-shell tobacco pouch; two little pictures -- one of town hall, Portsmouth, and one of Portsmouth coat of arms.
Frederick Humby was a 17 year old 2nd Class Plate Steward. The only other young "F.H." that died was Frederick Hopkins, who was 15 at the time.
The reason I think this body might be Humby is that, according to his bio, his brother Frank appears on the 1911 census at the Royal Naval Barracks and Officers' Quarters on Edinburgh Road, Portsmouth.
