History Biographical
Ludwig Adolf Frank was born February 22, 1907 in Worstadt, Germany. Little is known of his life except that he was a cabinet maker by trade. Frank was interned by British authorities during World War II as an enemy alien. He was shipped to Canada with other internees and spent his time there at Fort Lennox, Ile-aux-Noix, Quebec. His British address in official documents was listed as Low Fell. In 1943, Frank returned to England. While at Fort Lennox, Frank befriended one of the Veteran Guards, Major Angus P. Cameron (1885-1952). Cameron was a volunteer in the Fort Garry Horse in 1914 and later joined the Winnipeg Rifles in France. He was injured in the trenches and was joined to the Canadian Army Pay Corp. Frank presented Cameron with a handmade wooden inlay art piece of a sailing ship, created by Frank during his time at Fort Lennox.
