NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 11 September 1916

Roll of Honour. Yet another Jersey, Lieutenant R G Bertram, has made the supreme sacrifice. This gallant officer, who was born at Grouville, was the second son of the Honourable Louis J Bertram, formerly of Grouville and now Auditor General of Jamaica. He was in his 23rd year and gave up a position in one of the Canadian banks to join the 8th Battalion of the 1st Canadian Division. He was wounded during the fighting in July and was eventually moved to the Daughters of Empire Hospital at Hyde Park. His mother returned from Jamaica to visit him, but to the great regret of his relatives and many friends the soldier did not rally and passed away on Thursday last as the result of his wounds, and was buried on Saturday. To the family abroad and the relatives here, who include Mr J Bertram and Mrs Picot of Ivy Gate, and to the late officers many acquaintances we offer our sincere condolences in their bereavement.
