Peter Llewelyn Davies, aged 19 in 1917

This entry contains 2 image(s).


Peter Llewelyn Davies, aged 19 in 1917. These photos were probably taken during Peter's return to England when he was invalided out suffering from shell-shock and impetigo. He was by now a senior signal officer in France, and returned to the Western Front after a month's sick-leave.

By March 1918, he had reached the rank of captain and was the adjutant for 7th Battalion KRRC, when the German Spring Offensive began. Peter took charge of the battalion after their colonel was wounded during a fighting retreat that lasted 15 days, for which he was awarded the Military Cross.
