Private C. Kennedy 1st HLI
At Dewetsdorp, on 22nd November 1900, Private Kennedy carried a comrade, dangerously wounded and bleeding to death from Gibraltar Hill to hospital for three-quarters of a mile under very hot fire. Next day, volunteers were called for to take a message across a space over which it was almost certain death to venture and Private Kennedy at once stepped forward. He did not, however, succeed in delivering the message being severely wounded before he had gone 20 yards.
He was killed in Edinburgh trying to stop a runaway horse on 26th April 1907.
