NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 13 March 1917

Roll of Honour. Quite a series of deaths have taken place in the family of Mr & Mrs Barbier of 28 Burrard Street, recently a brother of Mr Barbier, a member of the Canadian Expeditionary Force died as the result of an accident on a Troop Ship, on Sunday his mother passed away and the family have now received news of the death in action of Mrs Barbier's brother, Private Elias Gallichan of the Canadian Machine Gun Corps. The deceased gallant soldier was the son of the late Mr George Gallichan and Mrs Gallichan formerly of Gorey. He left Jersey some 20 years ago in a sailing vessel and fortunately for himself decided to remain in Canada, for the ship was sunk with all hands on her return journey. The late Private Gallichan was 39 and had been in France for several months. He had not been in Jersey on leave and was looking forward to spending a well earned holiday in his native Island. To the bereaved family we tender our sincere sympathy.
