6209855 Pte John Carmody, 5th Bn, DCLI

6209855 Pte John Carmody of the 5th Battalion, Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry, died in the fighting in Holland on the 24th September 1944. Allied forces had entered the Netherlands twelve days earlier and so John Carmody was an early casualty of this particular campaign. He was born in Eire and was living in London when he enlisted.

John Carmody was 26 years old when he died. He is buried in the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
