You attached the following message to Trooper H J Pelham died 18 March 1919 Cairo, Egypt.

Born 13 Jan 1881, Wellington, NZ, son of Thomas William Pelham & Ellen Shirley Pelham. Husband of Maude Frances Rowen Pelham. [My gt. Uncle].

However, the service records of Trooper Henry James Pelham died 17 March 1919, Cairo, Egypt disclose service number 3144, he was born Botany, Sydney, NSW, Australia and his wife is Florence Ethel Pelham and he enlisted 2 Feb 1917 at Parramatta and is aged 26 years and 10 months. Buried Cairo war Cemetery, grave Q289.

I believe his parents to be Henry Kingsmill Pelham & Elizabeth Martha Simmons.

I think that the Find a Grave just gives a Salutation for PVT so I had suggested that one. Thanks for your note.
