NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 13 November 1914

Captain Frederick C S Dunlop Killed in Action. It is with the deepest regret we have to announce the death of Captain Frederick Cleave Strickland Dunlop of 1st Battalion Manchester Regiment who was killed in action on 8 November. The gallant Captain, who was 37, was the fourth son of Dr & Mrs A Dunlop of Belgrave House, Great Union Road, he was educated at Victoria College and married a Jersey lady, Miss Williams of Heathfield. Many Jersey families have given the best of their sons to the Empire but none more than Dr & Mrs Dunlop who have lost 2 sons in the present Great War whilst another was killed at Ladysmith and another died in Africa about the same time. We feel sure that the sympathies of everyone in the Island will be extended to Dr & Mrs Dunlop and the gallant Captain's widow in their bereavement. The Empire also has to mourn the loss of a most promising officer who we feel sure would have risen high in the noble profession he had chosen. To the many expressions of sympathy the parents have received we beg to add our own sincere condolences.
