  • Pte P C Davies died of wounds incurred when fighting near the Somme on 6 September 1918. His last letter home dated 15 June 1918 said he was trying to get home to "fix things up". He had to apply for leave and passage home, if leave was agreed to by General Richardson. His letter says " I don't care if it cost me £50 I will see the children right" (3 children aged 3, 4 and 5) " ... I may be able to save the situation." After his death the children were removed from their carers and put into the care of Percy's sister in Geraldine. Earlier letters describe trench warfare, being under bombardment and the effect of gas attacks. Sadly missed by his children and his then wife who it is clear coped badly with his absence and being alone with 3 small babies. His grandchildren have visited his grave at Varennes.
