Mr Parbery was at one time the village postman. Several years ago he went out to Canada. At the beginning of the war he returned and joined the R.A.M.C., and whilst on that duty contracted pneumonia and was invalided out of the Army. For a time he was manager of the Raunds Coffee Tavern, but later returned to Irchester. He leaves a widow and one child.
