Hi,

I am seeking any information on Private P Kerr, regimental number 41597,  who won the Military Medal whilst serving with the 15th Battalion, The Highland Light Infantry.

The gazette date for his MM award was the 27th June 1918. Unfortunatley, I have been unable to establish which other First World War Medals he is entitled to and when he enlisted but would appreciate any help you may be able to give.

Having obtained a copy of the Battalion War Diariy for April, May & June 1918 I believe he won his award for the Battalion's attack on Ayette on the 3rd April 1918. The war diary for April states that 25 Military Medals and one Bar were awarded for the attack on Ayette. 2 DSO's and 7 MC's were also awarded.

Thank you in advance.

 

David
