From The Times, 4 November 1918
Lieutenant Charles Penruddocke, Wiltshire Regiment, killed on October 4, was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Penruddocke, of Compton Park, Salisbury. He had relinquished his commission a few months before the war, but immediately on the outbreak he rejoined, and was posted to a battalion of the Wiltshire Regiment, with which he remained until his death. He had spent three winters on the Salonika front, where he was wounded in November last year, proceeding to another front in the summer of this year with his battalion. He was 25 years of age, and was educated at Clifton and Sherborne, and also gained his house colours. His colonel writes:- "I need hardly say how much I feel his loss, as he was one of the best and bravest fellows I know. He was doing extraordinarily good work at the time, and was invaluableto me and the brigade. The battalion have lost a very good friend." Of his two brothers, the younger was killed in action on the Salonika front in April 1917, while the second and surviving one was wounded at the battle of the Somme and was awarded the M.C.
