The Late Lieutenant Mauger. Referring
to the death in action of 2nd Lieutenant G Mauger the
Guernsey Evening Press says "2nd Lieutenant
Mauger, who was 25, was the son of Mr & Mrs Clarence
Mauger of St Helier, Jersey and was for many years a
clerk in the local branch of Capital and Counties Bank.
He volunteered twice and ultimately served for some
months in the ranks of the RGLI. He left for an officers
training school at Fermoy in July of last year in company
with his brother-in-law, Mr C T W Clark. They returned
together in November and both were gazetted 2nd Lieutenant
about Christmas, and left the Island for active service
six weeks ago. In October 1916 Mr Mauger married Miss
Grace Robilliard, third daughter of Mr & Mrs P E
Robilliard, and there is an infant son".
