Private Ernest Habib Yari was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1899, at Bloomsbury, the son of Mesopotamian-born translator Yari Azar and Ellen Yari (née Riches), of Attleborough, Norfolk. At the time of the 1911 Census, the Yari family were residing in Ellen's home town, on Hargham Road.

Yari died in German captivity on 14 June 1918, of wounds received on the Western Front that had required the amputation of his left leg. He had been serving with the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex Regiment) and had enlisted in September 1917.[1]

He is buried in Le Cateau Military Cemetery.
