Pte Frederick Perry


Pte Fred Perry, 33070, Leicestershire Regiment, was killed in action near Arras on April 13th, 1917. He left a widow, Alice Maud and six children, two of them adopted as their mother had died and their father was serving in France.

Fred Perry had been discharged from the Army on account of varicose veins after joining up at the outbreak of war. However, in November 1915 he rejoined and spent time training in Luton, Bedford, Halton Camp, Yorkshire and Folkestone. He went to France in December 1916.

The 38-year-old had been a member of the old Militia. Before joining up he was employed as a felt body maker by E. W. Hart, of Windmill Road.

At the time of Frederick's death, Alice was living at their home at 13 Park Place, off Park Street, Luton.
