Member of the Home Guard during the war. He was given a rifle, told to take it to bits to clean and couldn't get it back together. He wrapped the whole thing in a newspaper and took it to Will who put it together again. His son never saw the rifle again, so it seems that Fred learnt his lesson and decided to surrender quietly in case of trouble. Source ERK & SFK
