NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 25 October 1916

Roll of Honour. It will be remembered that when the list of casualties of the Jersey Company was published last month the name of Rifleman Brint appeared amongst those who were missing. Mrs Brint has now received the following letter from Sergeant Major J Le Breton, it reads

"Somewhere in France. 21/10/16. Dear Mrs Brint, In reply to your letter which you sent to OCD Company enquiring about your husband which has been passed to me as I am about the only one who knows anything about the Jersey Company as all our officers are new to the Battalion, I wrote to you on 12 September informing you of the death, but it appears that the letter must have been lost. You are the sixth whose letter has not reached them. Your husband was killed in action on 9 September 1916 during the attack. He was as fine a soldier as you could wish to meet and I was proud to have such a fine man in my Company. Since he has been with the Jersey Company he has been one of the best and his loss is a great one to the Company. On behalf of the NCOs and men please accept our deepest sympathy in your great hour of trouble, as your loss is one which cannot be filled. Hoping you and your family are keeping as well as can be expected in your great loss. I am yours sincerely, J LE BRETON, RSM"

Our deepest sympathy and that of all our readers is extended to Mrs Brint in her bereavement.
