  1. Brian Membrey says:

    “I knew Perrett. We were together at Fleurbaix on the 19th July, 1916. He had an impediment in his speech and stuttered. I was wounded on that day when we lost so many of my Battalion near Fromelles. The last I saw of Perrett that day was as he lay badly wounded of a stretcher in No Man’s Land. Pte. W. Smith of my Coy. told me afterwards that Perrett died before he could be brought back” (Cook, James Aboyner, 1197, 57th A.I.F)
