  Son of Thomas and Jane Pelfrey; husband of Florence Eliza Pelfrey, of Holly Cottage, Waterford, Lymington, Hampshire. Buried in Chakrata Cemetery.

Military :

Unit :  1/7 Hampshire Regiment 

Action : The Battle of Festubert 

Festubert (15-25 May 1915) was really a continuation of the Battle of Aubers Ridge that had been called off on 10th May, and in places fought over the same ground with the same depressing outcome. Some minor tactical success was achieved but it did not justify the 16,000 casualties. It did however reinforce the lessons of Neuve Chapelle and Aubers Ridge and conditioned planning and thinking that evolved into the tactical planning of the Somme in 1916.
