NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Monday 15 October 1917
Two Jersey Soldiers Reported Killed. Alarming
rumours have been circulating around town and country
today regarding a number of casualties to Jerseymen
serving in an English Regiment. We have made careful
enquiries and can only vouch for the authenticity of
two cases, Privates F Baudains and E Perchard, both
of the Hampshire Regiment, who have unfortunately been
called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. The information
was transmitted to the parents by a brother of the former
serving in the same Regiment. Private Baudains was one
of seven sons of Mr Baudains who are serving their Country,
whilst E Perchard was the son of Pilot Perchard, both
thus hale from the Eastern District. The late Private
Perchard leaves a widow and child, both men left Jersey
early in the year. We tender both the above families
our sincere sympathy.
