Roll of Honour. It is with sincere regret we chronicle the death which took place in action on Wednesday 20th March of 2nd Lieutenant Gerald Mauger, second son of Mr & Mrs Clarence G Mauger of 37 Gloucester Street. The deceased gallant officer was 25 and was very popular amongst a large circle of friends and acquaintances in this Island, which he visited on leave only a few weeks ago. He held an appointment in Guernsey and when the call came joined the 1st Royal Guernsey Light Infantry with whom he was fighting on the Western Front. We tender the bereaved parents and other relatives our sincere sympathy.
