NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 9 April 1918

Roll of Honour. Another well known soldier who was taken prisoner at Kut el Amara has unfortunately died whilst in the hands of the Turks, we refer to Regimental Sergeant Major J H Goldsmith, a former member of the RMIJ Permanent Staff, whose wife and three children reside at Fair View, Trinity. The deceased soldier was attached to the 86th Heavy Battery Royal Artillery and was captured at the close of 1916 and no news had been received from him for a considerable period. His wife has, however, now received the tragic information that he died at Islahgaa in Turkey. The late Regimental Sergeant Major, who was in his 37th year, was a well known athlete and had scores of friends and acquaintances in the Island who will hear the above news with regret and much sympathy will be felt for the widow and children.
