NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 30 December 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to state that Mrs Catelinet of Seaton Place has received a letter from the Reverend Cecil Salt, Chaplain of HM Hospital Ship Karapara, confirming the news she had previously received by telegram that her son, Private John Catelinet of the Royal Marines, died on the vessel from pneumonia. The Chaplain states that the Marine was admitted to the Hospital Ship on 2 December and though everything possible was done for him he passed away two days later. The ship was then stationed at Mudros and the gallant Jerseyman, who was in his 20th year, was buried at Mudros Cemetery. Unfortunately this is the second son that the widowed mother has lost in this war and we feel sure our readers join us in tendering our sincere sympathy.
