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.
