NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 17 May 1917

Roll of Honour. The Chaplain of 31st Battalion Canadians has written to Mr P J Hamon, formerly of Union Street and now residing in Guernsey, conveying the sad news that his son, Lance Corporal P J Hamon of the Canadians, was killed in action on 3 May by a shell explosion. The late NCO, who was for many years one of our news vendors, left the Island for Canada a few years back. He was in the Island on leave last year, and though not a young man was looking eagerly forward to the time when he would be facing the Hun. The Chaplain in conveying the news states that this loyal Jerseyman has made the great sacrifice for right and Empire and conveys his sincere sympathy to the bereaved family, and to these expressions we would add our own sincere condolences.
