Pearce, Dudley George

Captain Dudley George Pearce, of The Buffs, aged 25, was the son of the late George Pearce of Bournemouth. He was educated at Dulwich College, where in 1910 he took his colours for football. He became a medical student at Guy's, and was to have taken his final examination in November 1914. On the day of the outbreak of war, however, he enlisted as a private in the H.A.C. and left for France with the 1st battalion of that regiment in September 1914. He was invalided home at the end of the same year with frostbite, having taken part in some of the heaviest fighting of the war up to that period. On his recovery he received a commission as second lieutenant in the East Kent Regiment, and left again for the Front with his battalion. After much fighting and personal distinction he was on February 23rd of this year promoted on the field from second lieutenant to captain and gazetted as such as from November 1915. Killed in action September 3rd, 1916. Guy's Hospital Reports Vol.LXX, War Memorial Number
