NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of
Thursday 24 May 1917
Roll of Honour. We regret to record the
death which has taken place after much suffering of
Corporal Charles Philip Carrel of the Royal Engineers.
This loyal soldier was the fourth son of Mr & Mrs
Philip Carrel of Gorey Pier, and being keen on a military
career enlisted in the Army many years ago. He served
in the South African Campaign and eventually completed
his period of service and returned to civil life. At
the outbreak of war he volunteered and served in France
for some time, unfortunately, last November, he was
seriously wounded in the head and was sent to Queen
Mary's Hospital in Lancashire. It was thought that with
the careful treatment he was receiving he might recover,
but unfortunately he passed away yesterday. The late
NCO was 38. We tender the parents and other relatives
our sincere sympathy.
