Sgt Peter Pieraccini


Sgt Peter Pieraccini, 19744, 2nd Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action on the Somme on October 12th, 1916.

Born in Luton, he was the son of James and Elizabeth Pieraccini, of 19 May Street, Luton. He married Ethel May Dyer in 1906 and lived at 4 Manchester Place, Dunstable, with their six children.

A friend who was with him before they went into action wrote to his widow that Peter had been reported missing but was then found by another battalion to have been killed.

Like his father, Peter Pieraccini was a plasterer by trade. He enlisted in the Beds Regiment on March 1st, 1915, and was trained at Ampthill Camp. He got his first stripe after being in the Army a fortnight, and was afterwards promoted to the rank of sergeant.

He was drafted out to France in July 1915 and had been wounded once before his death. He had been a member of Dunstable Football Club.
