NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 12 July 1915

Lieutenant D C Marshall Missing. We learn that Lieutenant D C Marshall of the Lancashire Fusiliers is reported missing, official information having been received by his father Colonel W S Marshall, OC of the East Battalion. The officer, who was on sick leave in the Island for a few months, left for the Dardanelles about 2 months ago. His regiment, it will be remembered, played a gallant part in the attack on the peninsular, General Sir Ian Hamilton stating in his despatch "it was due to the complete lack of a sense of danger or of fear of this daring battalion that we owed our astonishing success". We sincerely trust that favourable news will shortly be received of this young officer.
