Roll of Honour. Another Jerseyman, Private Clarence Charles Bisson, has made the supreme sacrifice. This loyal soldier was serving in 12th East Surrey Regiment, to which Battalion his brother (now wounded) and several other former local residents are attached. This Regiment took part in the heavy fighting on the Somme in September last and on 15 September Private Bisson was reported missing. Enquiries have been made from various sources and the official information has now been received that the gallant soldier was killed in action on the date mentioned above. The late Private Bisson, who had served in the Army about 12 months was in his 28th year and was a son of Mr & Mrs S Bisson of 31 Great Union Road. He leaves a widow, nee Miss Parker, and one child to mourn his loss and to these and other members of the family we tender our heartfelt sympathy.
