October 26th 1919

We are delighted that Rev AB Karney, whose children, Anthony and Audrey, started with us in the Junior Department this term, has agreed to take on the Catechism class. He will take two forms together for five consecutive lessons. He will thus be brought in touch with all the senior boys in the school.

This Catechism class has had distinguished teachers, including the present Archbishop of York.

Rev. Karney

Rev Kearney has an impressive war record. At the start of the war he was a Royal Naval chaplain and was on board HMS Yarmouth at the Battle of Jutland.

Later in the war he served with the Northumberland Fusiliers, but was caught up in the Spring Offensive by the Germans in early 1918. He was captured and spent time in the Karlsruhe camp before being freed at the end of the war.
