    Although not shown on the AWM Roll of Honour, Pender was a late victim of the war, having died in the Caulfield Repatriation Hospital 29 December, 1923. His record shows him treated at 11 AGH in July, 1918, noted 53 years old with chronic myalgia in the right thigh and ankle, weak and debilitaed.

    A note to Base Depot from his wife advising of his death suggested his demise was due to War Service and made application for the Memorial Plaque and Scroll. Her application was subsequently granted by the Repatriation Commission, the mementos issued in late January, 1924 .

    PENDER — On the 29th December, at Caulfield Military Hospital, Peter (Cpl. R.O.C), beloved husband of Louisa Pender, of No. 2 Donaldson street, Port Melbourne, loving father of Rose (Mrs. Butcher), Peter (deceased), Amy,
    Ivy, Vera, James, Kathleen, Elsie, Grace, Mollie, and Lily, aged 57 years.
    At rest.
