NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 1 September 1917

Roll of Honour. The sympathy of all who know them will be extended to Mr & Mrs de la Haye of Clairval Cottage, St Saviour whose second son, Rifleman S de la Haye of the Jersey Company Royal Irish Rifles, was killed in action on 16 August last. In a letter to the bereaved parents Lieutenant C A Ogier says "Accept the deepest and most heartfelt sympathy of all the officers, NCOs and men of my Company on your great loss. Your son was greatly respected by all ranks and will be missed very much. I myself always found him willing to do anything that was required of him and he always did it in a most efficient manner. He was a most gallant and courageous soldier". This is the second son Mr & Mrs de la Haye have lost, their youngest son, Rifleman C de la Haye of the Kings Royal Rifles, having been killed on the same date last year. We offer the bereaved family our sincere condolences.
