Friday 20 July marks the 102 anniversary of the death of Sgt Kerr who died in the trenches of Fromelies, France in 1916.
The Digger’s body lies at Rue Du Bois Military Cemetry in Fleurbaix, which long-standing Andrew Kerr Care employee Richard Cornish visited to pay his respects at the grave site.
Chief Executive Officer Angelia Dixon said a new sign on the corner of Tanti Avenue and Barkley Street, Mornington would make the soldier’s link to the centre better known.
“The historic Glenbank was donated by Sgt Kerr’s mother in his name and still sits on the Andrew Kerr Care site where is it used as a day centre for older Peninsula residents,” she said.
