Jewish Chronicle Obituary, 28 July 1916

THE LATE SECOND-LIEUT. M. G. KLEAN. Sec.-Lieut. Michael Graham Klean, who was killed in action on July 1st, was the son of Mr. and Mrs, S. Klean, of 3, Golder's Green Crescent. At the outbreak of war he joined the H. A.C. as a private, and on promotion was transferred to the Cumberland Fusiliers. In communicating the sad news, Col. Ritson wrote that they all felt Lieut. Klean's loss keenly, because he was a most gallant and efficient officer and all had learnt to esteem him very highly.
