    I took a long look at this as it makes me wonder if he was related to Lt Col William Harcourt Kerr born Bromsgrove Worcestershire 1903. I have never really gone into his background and never seen any mention of a brother or cousin.
    Bill Kerr was for some time 2 i/c 67th Field Regt RA (TA) they were known as the Worcester Gunners.
    He went on to command the Regiment post war.
    Lt Col William Harcourt Kerr TD DL JP Born Bromsgrove 1903 Died February 1971 Farmer Droitwich Worcs.
