Kenneth Munro, 21 Knock (Point)

It is with deep regret and sympathy with the bereaved parents that we record the death of Leading Seaman Kenneth Munro, RNR, at 21 New Park, Knock. Kenneth, who was a bright lad and a great favourite in the district, joined the Naval Reserve at the outbreak of the war, and served on board HMS Yarmouth while it took part in the famous battle at Jutland. He was afterwards transferred to a minesweeper, on board of which he contracted the disease which ended his promising life on the 3rd August 1918, at the age of 25 years. He was an only son and the chief support of his father's family, and the sincerest sympathy of all goes out to the bereaved parents and sisters. His father has been ailing for anumber of years, and the present circumstances into which the family is placed owing to the son's death are very trying.
