NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 7 November 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to chronicle the fact that another loyal young Jersey Canadian has made the supreme sacrifice, Mr L G Albert of Cannon Street having today received official notification from the Canadian Record Office that his youngest brother, Private G A Albert of the Canadians, was killed in action on 27 September last. The deceased gallant soldier was not yet 19 and left for Canada some years ago, though young in years when the call of the Motherland came he joined a Young Soldiers Battalion and after training in England was eventually posted to the same battalion overseas as his older brother, who was unfortunately killed in action some time ago. The late soldier, who was well known and highly respected locally was on leave here at the beginning of the year and had been in France since July. We offer all the members of the bereaved family our sincere sympathy.
