The Penvro - County Shool, Pembroke Dock, Magazin No. 39 December 1915

Pte. R. .J. McKeon, of the 5th Leicesters, was badly wounded
a,t the taking of the Hohenzollern Redoubt. The Leicesters were
in the thick of the stubborn fighting which took place in this part;
they cleared the Huns out of the first two trenches and Dick fell
at the third, being shot in the side by machine gun fire. We are
glad to hear that hopes are entertained of his complete recovery,
but the case will be a long and tediious one.
