Frank Boundy was born in Kenwyn St George, near Truro. He moved to Chile
when his father accepted work with Balfour Williamson & Co in Valparaiso.

Shortly after war was declared, he, along with many other young men from the British community, sailed home to volunteer for military service during World War One. Boundy joined the Scots Guards as a private and later applied for a commission. He took the rank of 2nd Lieutenant in the 17th Battalion, The King’s (Liverpool) Regiment, and went on to win the Military Cross before he died on the Somme on 30 July 1916 aged 21, and is buried in Guillemont Road Cemetery, France.
