Name: KELLY, JOSEPH
Initials: J
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Driver
Regiment/Service: Royal Field Artillery, 35th Div Ammunition Col
Service Number: L/10514
Date of Death: 31/7/1916
Age: 19
Additional Information: Son of Hugh Kelly, of 15, Drumellan St., Maybole, Ayrshire.
Panel Reference: Pier and Face 1A and 8A
Memorial: Thiepval Memorial

Wigtownshire Free Press (30/8/1916): Driver Joseph Kelly, RFA, reported missing after 29 July, is now reported "died of wounds". Driver Kelly, previous to removing to Maybole, where he enlisted, was a resident in Colmonell. He received his education at the Public School, and was afterwards in the employment of Mr Crawford McCreath, baker. He was a happy dispositioned lad, and an all-round favourite. As a boy, he possessed a particularly sweet voice, and gave promise of developing into a fine singer. Another brother, Tom, made the supreme sacrifice in the spring of this year.

Driver Kelly is also named on Colmonell Roll of Honour.
