NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 25 April 1917

Roll of Honour. News has been received by the parents, Mr & Mrs J Balleine of La Commune, St Peters, that their son, Corporal Alan C Balleine of the 14th Canadian Infantry Regiment, has been killed whilst fighting on the Western Front.
The deceased young Jerseyman, who was only 19, had gone out to Canada from the Island while a lad and soon after the outbreak of war had joined the forces of the Dominion to help win the Great War. The letter informing the parents of his death states that this took place on Easter Monday during the progress of the Battle of Arras. We beg to offer our sincere sympathy to the bereaved parents of this gallant young Jerseyman.
