John Kennedy
Rank: Second Lieutenant
Date of Death: 23/04/1917
Regiment/Service: Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) attd. 7th Bn. Border Regiment
Panel Reference: Bay 6.
Memorial: ARRAS MEMORIAL
Additional Information:
Resident at 7 Park Drive South, Glasgow. (Glasgow RoH)
He was a teacher at Govan High School; the only one from the school to be killed in the war.
Listed on the Glasgow University Roll of Honour and on Jordanhill Teacher Training College Memorial (1906)

From Govan Press 11/5/18

“Govan Teacher killed: Second Lieutenant John Kennedy

To the steadily growing list of local men who have given their lives for their country has to be added the name of Second Lieutenant John Kennedy MA formerly a teacher in Govan High School. Mr Kennedy obtained his commission in the Scottish Rifles four months ago but at the time of his death was attached to the Border Regiment. He had been about three months in France. His loss will be keenly felt by his colleagues and former pupils for he was a skilful and enthusiastic teacher and never tired of his efforts to develop his scholars along the lines of their own varied personalities.
Of the twelve members of Govan High School staff on active service, four have been wounded, but Mr Kennedy is the first to make the supreme sacrifice. He hated war but saw it as the cure for German glorification of militarism, so he went forth to do his best. Mr Kennedy was 29 years of age. The sympathies of all concerned will go to his mother and young widow. “

Shawlands Academy; Bellahouston Academy and Glasgow University; was a School Teacher; joined the 2/6th (Territorial) Bn. The Highland Light Infantry 5 Aug. 1914, as a Private, being promoted to Company Sergeant Major in Oct. 1915; trained at Dunfermline, Maldon and the Curragh Camp near Dublin; forfeited his rank and went out to France as Sergt. In Nov. 1917, being drafted into the 17th Bn. of his regiment, which was subsequently disbanded and then joined the 12th Bn. He was killed in action in Maricourt Wood near Montauban 25 March 1918. Buried at the side of the railway station of Montauban. Captain Hamilton on hearing of his death wrote, “From 1914 till 1916 I commanded the Company in which your son served whilst with the 2/6th Highland Light Infantry. Sergeant D. Kerr came to me , I think, as L/Cpl. but my opinion of him was such that in a very few months I had made him my Company Sergeant Major. I can honestly say that I have never had the pleasure to meet a more upright and through and through white man, and I can feel in some small degree how dreadful the loss to you must be,” and Lieut. Stewart; “He was killed in action as his company was advancing to the attack and died fighting with great spirit. He was a fine N.C.O. and always showed a fine example to his men. He is a great loss to his company and battalion.”

His brother

Captain Hamilton stated that he had formed a very high opinion of him as a soldier and Captain Christie, under whom he fought wrote, “Your son was a splendid soldier.” In a letter to his mother Quartermaster Elliot says of him, “Whilst he was with us his example was worth much; always cheerful, always willing and always clean in conduct and language, his silent example under trying conditions often shamed those who should have known better.”
