NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 8 July 1918

Roll of Honour. It is with deep regret we chronicle the death which took place on Wednesday last, 3 July, at the New Zealand Stationary Hospital in St Omer of Private James Alexandre, son of Mr & Mrs Alexandre of 60 Don Road, formerly of The Lion Hotel. The deceased soldier, who was only 25, was a very popular young fellow and worked for 12 years for Mr J O Leslie, the butcher. He joined up in 1917 and was transferred to a Labour Company of the Royal Army Service Corps. Whilst on duty in France he contracted pneumonia and unfortunately succumbed as stated above. We tender the family our sincere sympathy.
