Back to the HMS Repulse crew list

Peter Edward Wallace
Royal Marine
Service no. PLY/X 3702


This Remembrance Day (2006) I visited Eltham Cemetery in London where I came upon the grave of Peter Edward Wallace aged 19. The inscription and my subsequent check of the CWGC site indicates that he served on HMS Repulse and died on 29th January 1942.His regimental number was PLY/X 
Unfortunately the grave appeared to have had no visitors.

Thank you
