Herbert Jeffrey Palmer.

From a local paper dated October 27th 1917 = Lance Corporal H.J. Palmer, signaling section, Beds Regiment, Swans Place, Peterborough, died of wounds received in action on October 13th 1917, he was 20 years of age and was formerly in the co-operative grocery department, Park Road, Peterborough, and enlisted in the Cycle Corps in September 1915. The Chaplain writing to his mother stated: "A transfusion was resorted to owing to the lad losing much blood, and although this saved his life for the time being, he died of severe shock following an operation performed to remove shrapnel from his chest".
