Dear All,
I have an MID certificate to J Kermode , Camel Corps , formerly 3rd. L. H. Can anyone give me any innfo on this man? The AWM Nominal Roll lists a J Kermode as DCM but the print is appaling to try to read.Neil Smith's book on the 3rd L H does not mention Kermode in the honours and awards , so was it awarded while Kermode was in the Camel Corps?
All the best , Don. Pedler.

Don,
Jim Kermode embarked with the 5R/3 LHR (948) and is stated to be 26 year old Farmer from Nortons Summit SA. He enlisted 27-11-14.

He was taken on strenght 3Bn 14Co 1-7-16.

He won the MM and MID at the 2nd battle of Gaza covering the with drawnal of the 11th and 12th companies from Jack and Jill redoudts late in the arvo of the 19-4-17 with his Lewis gun.

He won the DCM at Khuweilfe for the same reasons by covering two trapped companies over two days 6/7-11-17.

He went to the 15th LHR in July 1918 and fought with them till RTA 2-8-19.

He was a well known and liked man by all the Camel Corps.

Thats all I have on him at present.

S.B

P.S
James was TOS 3 LHR 29-9-15 on Gallipoli and on rtn to Egypt he went to the Western Frontier Force in December 1915.

He went to the 1 LHTR 4-4-16 being attached to HQ Military Police 17-4-16.

He rtn to the 3 LHR 6-6-16 before going to the 14Co Imp Cml Corps 1-7-16.

He was prom L/Cpl 9-7-17, Cpl 11-11-17 and Sgt 1-7-18.

I should add he was given a 2nd MID for work in the 15 LHR in 1918 but cannot find why as yet.

S.B
