  • John Kevern was the son of John and Florence Kevern, of Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand.

    To Florence.

    'This was the enemy's last real stand before the Arno, and when the advance was resumed the next morning (4 August two burnt-out Tiger Tanks, still smouldering were found just past the end of the sunken road. The more optimistic in the regiment claimed that their HE fire had knocked them out, a claim which greatly heartened 6 Troop at the time but which now seems hardly likely. The squadron commander, Major Clapham, thinks that they were probably brewed up by the artillery, the most likely possibility; Heptinstall himself, who was given some credit for the success at the time and has most to lose, says that' it is my personal belief that the Jerries brewed them up as they probably did not have enough petrol to move them back beyond Arno.'. These tanks had been the core of the enemy's opposition during the fighting of the last three days and their elimination, no matter who was responsible, virtually meant the end of the battle south of the Arno. Heptinstall won the MC for his outstanding ability and courage in this action, and others shared the credit with him :Sergeant-Major Reid, as aggressive as ever ('if there was anything Jack Reid liked more than a scrap it was another scrap'); Corporal Newman ('the magnificent, aggressive cool soldier as he always was'); the four men killed - Harold Chatterton, Frank Mathias, Clive Lane, and John Kevern.'from Official History of New Zealand in the Second World War 1939-45 : 20 Battalion and Armoured Regiment' byD.J.C. Pringle & W.A. Glue AWMM

  • RIP John. I see your friends call you Jock but to my family we call you John (or Johnny). Please don't feel you are forgotten because you are not. I am your father's cousin's daughter. Yes, a bit distant but family nonetheless. I have photos of you so there you are, not to be forgotten. I can't imagine the horrors of war having been born in 1956 in Southland. You made the ultimate sacrifice but, John I wish I could have known you. With much love, Frances Bowden
