William Pulteney Pulteney

Lieutenant-General Sir William Pulteney Pulteney GCVO, KCB, KCMG, DSO (1861–14 November, 1941) was a British general during the First World War.

He was Scots Guards officer who served in various campaigns in Africa including the Anglo-Egyptian War and the Second Boer War.

Pulteney from 5 August 1914 to 19 February 1918 in command of British III Corps. He then headed 23rd Army Corps from 20 February 1918 to 15 April 1919. After World War I he was specially employed by the British Military Mission to Japan. He was not highly regarded as an officer, being described by one of his subordinates as "the most completely ignorant general I served during the war".

He was created a KCB, 1915; a KCMG, 1917, and a KCVO, 1918. Pulteney was married in 1917 to Jessie, daughter of Sir John Arnott, Baronet.
