Frank Valder served in France from 15 March 1915 and was awarded his Military Medal for service with the 4th London Field Ambulance, a unit of the Territorial Force. As part of the 2nd London Division, the unit concentrated near Bethune, France, and saw significant action at the battles of Aubers Ridge, Festubert, and Loos, and the subsequent action on the Hohenzollern Redoubt. Valder's M.M. likely reflected gallant service on the Somme in 1916, In 1916, the 4th London Field Ambulance lending valuable service at the battle of Flers-Courcelette and the eventual capture of High Wood; the unit then continued to see service during the battles of the Transloy Ridges and in the attacks on the Butte de Warlencourt.

Valder was disembodied on 2 April 1919; sold with two contemporary postcard group shots of medics of the 4th London Field Ambulance, dated August 1915 and April 1917, together with copied MIC and M.M. award card.
