7th Battalion, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (British Army)
16/08/1917 (Killed in Action)
Joseph Kerr was born in Coalisland. Joseph enlisted in Dungannon. Private Joseph Kerr was serving with the 7th Battalion of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers when he was killed in action in France on 16 August 1917. Private Joseph Kerr has no known grave and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial in France. We believe the Private J Carr listed on the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers panel of the Dungannon War Memorial is this man.
The Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing forms the north-eastern boundary of Tyne Cot Cemetery, which is located 9 kilometres north east of Ieper town centre, on the Tynecotstraat, a road leading from the Zonnebeekseweg (N332). The names of those from United Kingdom units are inscribed on Panels arranged by Regiment under their respective Ranks. The names of those from New Zealand units are inscribed on panels within the New Zealand Memorial Apse located at the centre of the Memorial.
