Lieutenant ARNOLD JOHN St. LEGIER KERRY
Unit 16th Manchester Regiment
Awards Mentioned in Despatches
Buried at CAMBRIDGE CITY CEMETERY
We regret to record the death of Lieut. Kerry at Cambridge Hospital on February 14th, 1918, after an operation undergone in the hope of making himself more fit for his work. He was wounded in the head on J u l y 2nd, 1916, at the taking of Montauban, where he had behaved with great gallantry, capturing 28 Germans single-handed, and was mentioned in dispatches. He had been in Cambridge since March, 1917, as Instructor with an Officer Cadet Battalion at Emmanuel College, but the shrapnel wound had never properly healed. After the operation, in spite of every care and attention, he passed away quietly and unconsciously in the presence of his mother, sisters, and fiancée, to whom we tender our deep sympathy in their sad loss.
His brother also died.
