NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 11 March 1919

Dangerously Ill. Mrs Gallichan of 17 Hue Street left the Island this morning having received telegraphic information that her son, who is serving with the Colours, is lying at Bramshott in a very critical condition.

NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 21 March 1919

Jersey Canadian Dies in Hospital. A few days ago we stated that Mrs Gallichan and her daughter had left the Island to visit her son, Alfred Gallichan of the Canadians, who was lying ill in hospital in England. We now regret to state that the soldier passed away on Friday last, his relatives being present at his bedside. By an irony of fate the deceased, who was the youngest of seven brothers who had served in the trenches, was the only one to escape unwounded and was on his way home to Jersey on leave when he was taken ill with influenza. The gallant soldier was in his 23rd year. We tender the family our sincere sympathy.
