NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 18 October 1917

Popular Jersey Naval Officer Killed in Action. We regret to state that one of the best known Jersey Pilots, who loyally volunteered at the outbreak of war, Captain John Philip Allix, has been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. Captain Jack Allix, as he was more generally known, was 40 and the eldest son of Pilot J W Allix of 15 Havre des Pas, he was a Captain in the Foreign Service and returning to Jersey was in the No 2 Boat with his father as Pilot for all around the Island. In 1914 he was gazetted as Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Reserve and was appointed in charge of a drifter, one of those little vessels manned by gallant crews which have done such useful service, not only in mine sweeping but when the opportunity arose in sinking the murderous U-boats. He took part in many little known engagements near the Adriatic waters and for his services in action was Mentioned in Despatches. He was on leave in the Island last April and it was presumed returned to his duties in that hot corner of the Mediterranean and yesterday his wife, who was on holiday in the country and who resides at Brockenhurst, Green Street, was shocked to receive a brief telegram from the Admiralty stating that her husband had been killed on 17 October and that a letter followed. Pilot Allix, the father, is on holiday in England and has not yet received the sad news. We feel sure all our readers join us in tendering sympathy to the widow, the father and other members of the family in the sad loss they have sustained. The Jersey flag is flying today at half-mast at the Harbour Offices and building and other offices as a token of respect.
