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
