Photographs of John Kenny, Irish Guards who died at Polechappelle, 1917
DU227 CB Photographs of John Kenny, Irish Guards who died at Polechappelle, 1917
My grandfather John (Johnny) Kenny was born in 1885 in Gorey, Co. Wexford to Michael and Mary Kenny. He had been a postman in Gorey before the war, and joined the Irish Guards (No. 4955) in 1914 after John Redmond's call. He saw action in the Somme, survived and went on to fight and fall at Polechappelle on 12 September 1917. Together with six other men he was blown up in Polechappelle. As there was no body to bury his name is recorded on panel 10 in Tyne Cot Cemetry near Ypres. I have provided 2 photographs, with no date. In the group photograph, my grandfather is on the left.
