But RFK was obviously told at some point what his real name was. The World War One medal rolls at The National Archives list a Kitchener Saddington, who was initially a private in The Queen's Regiment (regimental number 70248) and latterly a private in the Northamptonshire Regiment (regimental number 70689). He received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal, indicating that he had served overseas in a theatre of war. Why he changed regiments and where he fought are questions that remain to be answered.
RFK survived the war and got himself a job as a postman. Then, on 7 December 1925, he married Ivy Doreen Dighton at the parish church in Godmanchester. However, the family cover up continued. Although Ivy's father, James, a general labourer, stood as a witness, RFK gave his father as Arthur Saddington, also a general labourer. Where he got the name Arthur from, I am not sure as his mother's brother was called Alfred and his great grandfather, Laura's father, was called Charles. Laura's brothers were Frederick, Charles and Dennis, so no link there. However Laura did stand as witness to the marriage so he did have some real family there.
The next official record in RFK's life was the birth of a son, Frederick, in the June quarter of 1932. The family are still living in the Huntingdon area.

RoSPA have suggested that perhaps he took part in a national "Safe Driving" competition which ran from 1926 (having commenced in the London area in 1918). RoSPA say that
