Private John Hardie

Private John Hardie, 7th Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers. He died of wounds in France on 21st June 1915, aged 20. He was the son of Mr Hardie of Kempling Moss, Lowick, Berwick upon Tweed and is buried in Bailleul Communal Cemetery Extension Nord, France. 7th N.F. were part of the 50th Northumbrian Division and at this time were in defensive positions near Hooge where they suffered heavy casualties from enemy shelling. It seems likely  that Private Hardie received his wounds here. Before enlisting in Alnwick he had been employed on the farm at East Moneylaws.
