NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Monday 16 November 1914
Sergeant Fairs Killed in Action. We regret
to state that news has been received that Sergeant Fairs
of the East Surrey Regiment has been killed in action.
The Sergeant who was married to a Jersey lady was very
well known in this Island which he visited quite recently.
He was a prominent footballer and referee whilst the
Regiment was stationed here. He was also a member of
the IOGT. To his widow and relatives we beg to offer
our sincere sympathy in their sad bereavement.
