NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 30 September 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to record the fact that Miss Estella Guiliana of Lynwood, Parade Road, received a letter on Saturday from the Lewis gun officer of the 1st Battalion Middlesex Regiment stating that her brother, Lance Corporal Albert Guiliana, had been killed by a shell on 20 September. The gallant lad, though well under the military age, volunteered in May 1916 and had been in France over 2 years, having been twice wounded. He was keen on his profession and both in and out of the Army was held in the highest regard by scores of acquaintances and friends who will regret to hear of his decease. The officer in conveying the sad news states "I trained with him as a Lewis gunner and then in this Battalion I had him as instructor. He has done extraordinarily good work out of the line and his Company officers spoke most highly of his work in the line. He is a very great loss to us all and his many friends in the other Battalions will be very sorry to hear the news". To the sister, the grandparents, Mr & Mrs T Chevalier, who have lost two sons-in-law and two grandsons in the war, and the other relatives we offer our heartfelt sympathy.
