NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 12 February 1917

Roll of Honour. The official news was received here yesterday that George Dumont, an officers steward serving on a destroyer which was sunk by a mine in the Channel last week, had lost his life in the disaster. George Dumont was the son of Mr & Mrs A Dumont of Seale Street and was an old boy of the Home for Boys. He was 20 and had been in the Navy for 18 months. This is the second loss the family have sustained during the war, the eldest son having been killed during the retreat from Mons. The sympathy of all our readers we feel sure is extended to the parents in their sorrow, the deceased having been a most dutiful and loyal son.
