Arthur Pegler’s Will

Recently they have begun digitising WW1 soldiers wills. I did a quick search and found that Arthur Pegler’s will had already been digitised so I ordered it hoping that it would contain something interesting. Unfortunately this was not the case, his will is transcribed below. It is  no nonsense and straight to the point:

In the event of my death I give property
and whole of my effects
to Mrs A J Pegler (mother)

3772 A J Pegler  Sergt 4th dragoon Guards

Some what disappointing – no story as described in the original BBC article, however, having transcribed his letters last year which were generally short and to the point it doesn’t surprise me that much. He was a career soldier and knew his duty.
