Henry Edward Kenny

(1888-1979) Maryon Park, Charlton

On 25 September 1915 near Loos, France, Private Kenny went out on six different occasions under very heavy shell, rifle and machine-gun fire. Each time he carried into a place of safety a wounded man who had been lying in the open. He was himself wounded as he brought back the last soldier.
