The Death of Mick Kerr 1DERR

At 23:38 hours on 8th December Mick Kerr died having been admitted to RUH Bath Hospital. Mick had been suffering for some time and is now free from his pain and suffering. Mick Kerr joined 1 DERR and after an initial stint in a mechanised platoon, successfully passed a Regimental Signal Cadre and from that point on became a member of the Signal Platoon. Even his ERE posting saw him posted to 1 Wessex as the Signal Platoon PSI. He was a colourful character who was very proficient at his trade setting high standards in signalling and who was prepared to fight his corner. He was well respected within the Signal Platoon and many a young signaller benefitted from working alongside Mick. After leaving the Army, Mick cruelly lost his wife Margaret which undoubtedly made life more difficult for him. At least now he is free from his pain and at rest with her.
Mick Kerr’s funeral is at 11:45 hours on 5th January 2014 at The West Wiltshire Crematorium, Devizes Road, Semington, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 6HL. Afterwards the wake will be held at The Liberal Club, 26 Banks Street, Melksham, SN12 6LG. Please inform if you intend going to the wake.
