Frederick Ricks was a "boy" at Waterloo, and the brother of Diedrick Ricks. my 3 x great grandfather, and also served with the King's German Legion, 2nd Light Battaliion.  He was born about 1800, presumably in Germany, and like Diedrick, and their other brother Louis, became an army bandmaster.

Frederick was a member of the 72nd (The Duke of Albany's Own Highlanders) Regiment during South Africa's 6th Frontier War of 1834 - 1835 and is listed as having been awarded the South Africa 1853 Medal.

He died on 15 August 1863 at Buckhurst Hill, Essex.
