NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 15 May 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to record the death of another gallant Jersey Colonial, Private Henry (Harry) Bryant of the Australians. This Islander left Jersey many years ago and settled in the Commonwealth. He joined up in December 1914 in Adelaide and was in the thick of the fighting at Gallipoli and later on the Somme. Though given a position at a rest camp he willingly volunteered to rejoin his Battalion and in the recent fighting sustained wounds from which he died at the 15th Casualty Clearing Station on 11 April. The late soldier, who was well known here, has two sisters who reside in Scarborough, and to these and other members of the family we extend our sincere sympathy.
