Irish Life Magazine: 24 November 1916
Lieutenant Charles Annesley Kinnear, was the elder son of Mr. and Mrs. Kinnear, of Albany House, Ranelagh, and was only 19 years of age when killed in action. Having left the Dublin High School in October, 1915, he entered Trinity College, where he joined the Dublin University Officers’ Training Corps. In the following month he obtained a commission in the Royal Field Artillery, and, after a short training, was sent, in January of the present year, to the front in France, where he saw continuous service until the date of his death.
'In particular we note with great regret the death in action of 2nd Lieut. C. A. Kinnear, who acted as Honorary Treasurer to this Magazine for the year 1914-15. He joined the R.F.A.(Royal Field Artillery) towards the end of October, 1915, and was sent out to France in the beginning of this year, to the front in France, where he saw continuous service until the date of his death.
'Those waves, in many a fight, have closed above her faithful dead;
That red-cross flag victoriously bath floated o'er their bed;
They perished—this green turf to keep by hostile tread unstained—
These knightly halls inviolate—those churches unprofaned.'
