NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Thursday 20 February 1919
Roll of Honour. The many friends of Officers
Steward Emile John George Drieu of the Royal Navy, second
son of Mr & Mrs A Drieu of 3 Rosebank, St Saviours
Road, will regret to learn that the parents have received
a telegram stating that the sailor died on Tuesday last
at Haslar Naval Hospital from pneumonia, after a very
brief illness. A telegram was received by the father
some time ago stating that his son was ill and relatives
left to visit him last week. On Thursday it was considered
that all danger was past but a relapse must have taken
place for the above sad news has now been received.
The deceased, who joined the Royal Navy shortly after
the outbreak of hostilities, was 26. We offer the bereaved
family our sincere sympathy.
Commemorated on St Thomas Roman Catholic
Church Memorial, Jersey
