Sorry it has taken so long to find this, but have you discovered a memorial to COPP was built on Hayling Island in 2012. If your family has any photographs or other personal effects from Frederick’s COPP service, the memorial team would love to hear from you – and help with any questions you may have about Freddie’s involvement with COPP from what we know. Thanks
