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.
