Could he have emigrated to New Zealand. London Gazette 1/1/70. Nelson, for services to the community, especially visits to mental hospials.

Would have been in his 70s then.

I have managed to locate his service records, full name is Frederick Charles Challen. his MIC stated his second name starting with a J but should have been a C, hope that helps
