Letter from Capt. C.S. Petheram to Mrs Parr,
"B.E.F. May 12th 1917,
Dear Mrs Parr, It is with the deepest regret that I have to write and tell you that your husband, Captain W.W. Parr, is missing. He took his Company over in a brave attempt to gain, by an immediate counter-attack, some ground which had been lost. The last seen of him was by an NCO who saw him walking about among his men, helping and encouraging them. His men absolutely worshipped him, and would follow him anywhere. Every single officer loved him, and he was absolutely the life and soul of the Mess, always he was ready to make jokes at any time. When I first joined the Battalion in Sept. last I was posted to his Company, and was his only subaltern for a long time. I went over the top first with him, and stayed with him nearly all the time in this Battn. In this way I may say that I got to know him, and count him as one of the best friends I have ever had. I am now commanding the Company he last took over, and shall endeavour to run it on similar lines to what he did. I do not know what to say, Mrs Parr, to give you any hope. I leave that to God and the future. I can only sincerely console with you in such especially distressing circumstances. I he is dead, he died, as he always lived, like a hero, and if he is alive - I cannot hold much hope of that - no one will be more glad than I. If I can do anything to help in any investigation, or can assist in any way out here, please command me. Believe me, Yours very sincerely, C.S. Petheram."
