NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 11 October 1918

Roll of Honour. It is with sincere regret we record the death of another loyal and gallant Jerseyman, Rifleman Herbert Parker Ereaut of the Queens Westminster Rifles. This soldier was the third son of the late Mr James J Ereaut, Constable of St Saviour, and Mrs Ereaut of Belleville, and held an appointment at the Head Office of the London City & Midland Bank. He volunteered under the Derby Scheme and after serving in Salonika, Egypt and Palestine returned to England last July where he married an English lady and then paid a brief visit to his native isle. A short time afterwards he reached the Western Front and an officer of the Westminster's writing to his wife conveys the sad news that the Rifleman was killed on 28 September when gallantly attacking the enemy. The deceased was in his 37th year and was not only well known but highly respected locally and the news of his decease will be received with deep regret by a large circle of acquaintances and friends. To the mother and other relatives here and to the widow, who resides in England, we tender our sincere condolences.
