Grave VI.L.3.

Son of Mr PJ Fester, of 54, Jordan St, Cape Town (Source : C.W.G.C.).

Killed in action on the 12th October 1916. Age 20.

On the 12th October 1916, the 2nd and 4th S.A.I. attacked Snag and Tail Trenches. The assault died away because of machine guns nests, placed well back in prepared positions, which caught the attacking waves at long range.
