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.
