World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lieutenant in the 3rd Bn, 1st Central Ontario Regiment, Canadian Expeditionary Force. On September 27, 1918, Lieutenant Kerr was in command of the left support company in attack at Bourlon Wood, France. He led his company with great skill and gave support by outflanking a German machine-gun which was impeding advance. Later, near the Arras-Cambrai road the advance was again held up by a strong point. Lieutenant Kerr, far in advance of his company, rushed this point single-handed and captured four machine-guns and thirty one prisoners. For conspicuous bravery and leadership, he was promoted Captain and awarded the Victoria Cross Medal by King George V at Buckingham Palace in May, 1919.
