PortraitJohn Kenneally was awarded the VC during the Tunisian campaign in the Second World War. He was promoted sergeant after the fall of Tunis and later wounded during the battle of Anzio in February 1944. He subsequently joined the 1st Guards Parachute Battalion, and went out to Palestine. Tempted to join the Israeli forces, thoughts of his wife and two sons, and his loyalty to the Guards, kept him from doing so. After the war, he had a successful career in the motor industry.
