The lord of the flies-English

Why is percival unable to remember his name and address?
Please help!! :(

He is one of the "littleuns". He is so traumatized by the events he lives through that he forgets what civilization is about, including his name.

"Percival Werthys Madison: This littlun would always give a full introduction of himself: 'Percival Wemys Madison. The Vicarage. Harcourt St. Anthony, Hants, telephone....' complete with address. He is one of the three attacked by rocks thrown by Roger and Maurice when building sand castles. By the end, when finally rescued by the grown-ups all he can say is 'I'm-- I'm--' before realizing he has forgotten his civilized identity. "

does ralph understand why he must be killed?
