Although he had been in poor health for some time Mr Kerr had only been confined to the house for a fortnight. HIs passing will remove a kent figure from the life of the old burgh. Born at Larbrax, Leswalt, 81 years ago, he, after receiving a thorough practical training in farming under his father, entered the farm of Palmallet. That was 55 years ago, and from that time he continued there till his retiral nine years since. During his long tenancy of Palmallet Mr Kerr was a most successful stock farmer and took a great interest in everything pertaining in agriculture. He also took his share in the public service of the community having been for many years a member of the Old School Board of Sorbie parish. For a long number of years he held with much acceptance the office of Chairman of the Garlieston Harbour Trust, but felt compelled to reliquish it owing to his hearing failing. He was also a much respected elder of Sorbie Parish Church for a long time. Bowling and curling were his chief sports and then going to live in Whithorn he was a member of the Whithorn Recreation Club and notwithstanding his age thoroughly enjoyed the games. During his long life Mr Kerr was most upright and honest in his dealings. Big in stature and big in heart he possessed a cheery disposition and had a jovial greeting for everyone. He was much respected and held in the highest esteem throughout the whole district. Left to mourn his loss are a widow and three daughters, his only son having been killed in the Great War. The Funeral took place to Whithorn Cemetery today (Thursday.)" Details from CWG Commission : In Memory of Private Charles Kerr, 267228, 8th BN.
