Frederick Habberfield had a brief cycling career. In December 1943, he was serving as a canteen manager on the HM Frigate Cuckmere, which was deployed as an escort for the military convoy KMS34. The convoy was attacked by German submarines and the Cuckmere was involved in the search operation for survivors. During the search, the frigate was hit on the aft by a T5 Homing Torpedo and was destroyed with Habberfield dying as a result of the attack. Of the 164 ships in the convoy, only 80 survived.
