Private J. S. Kerr Rendering First Aid To The Wounded At A Farm, Which Was Being Heavily Shelled.
During a heavy bombardment by high explosive and gas shells on December 29th 1915, Private J. S. Kerr, of the Royal Army Medical Corps (attached 7th Siege Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery), left his dug out, near Ypres, and passed through a dense cloud of gas over 200 yards to a farm in which another battery was billeted. Here he rendered first aid to several wounded men. The farm was being heavily shelled at the time, but though wounded himself, he continued his work among the other wounded. He was subsequently awarded the D.C.M. for his conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.
