  • Notes 
    • Trained with the Bamberg textile manufacturers Sichel & Kaufmann from 1902. Later he worked with the Bing metalware company in Nuremberg. From about 1910 he worked for some time in London returning in 1913 to enter the family business. During WW1 he served in the Somme on the German army front line where he was promoted to Lieutenant in June 1917 (rare for a Jew) and was awarded the Iron Crosses 2nd and later 1st Class as well as the War Injury Medal and the Bavarian Military Cross of Merit. He monitored British military messages!

      After the war, he returned to the family electrical wholesale business in Bamberg and with his brothers Salamon and Robert began manufacturing in 1919 resulting in 1924 in the separate manufacturing business, Hugo Loebl Soehne, which employed 200 people.

      On the morning after Kristallnacht, Fritz and his brother Robert were arrested but released the same evening because it is said, the Gestapo Chief in Bamberg went to school with Fritz. In December 1938 the manufacturing business was 'sold' and Fritz and his family pursued their departure from Germany to England.

      Here they began afresh (Loblite Limited) in Gateshead, with some encouragement from the British Government to support this depressed economic area, but also following a period of internment as they were regarded as "enemy aliens" at Huyton Internment Camp near Liverpool.

      Buried At Hazelrigg Jewish Cemetery, Newcastle upon Tyne. Hebrew name: Sandel ben David ha'Levi.
