NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 28 July 1916

Lieutenant Fisher Reported Missing. We regret to learn that Lieutenant T E C Fisher of the 1st East Lancashire Regiment, son of Captain & Mrs E Fisher formerly of St Saviours, is reported missing since 2 July. A gleam of hope is, however, given by his Company Commander, now in hospital in London, who has informed Captain Fisher that he saw his son disappear into a German trench during an attack, so that it is hoped that the officer is alive and a prisoner.

NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 11 September 1916

Roll of Honour. Some weeks ago we announced that Lieutenant T E C Fisher of the Dorset Regiment, son of Captain & Mrs Fisher formerly of St Saviour, was reported missing, he having last been seen entering a German trench. Hopes were entertained that this popular officer would be reported a prisoner of war, but unfortunately it is now presumed that the Subaltern has been killed. The late Lieutenant was an Old Victorian and the news of his death will be received with regret by his friends and acquaintances in the Island. To Captain Fisher and family we tender our sincere condolences in their bereavement.
