Petty Officer Stoker Francis Gregory
Royal Navy. H.M.S. "Black Prince."
Youngest son of Mrs Gregory of 6 Eden Place, Ann Street,
St Helier, Jersey
Husband of Kate Gregory (nee Churchill)
Killed in action, aged 34 years
NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 8 June
Roll of Honour. We regret to state that
Mrs Gregory of Ann Street yesterday received a wire
from the Admiralty stating that her son, Petty Officer
Francis Gregory who was serving on HMS Black Prince
was lost in the naval battle of Wednesday last. We feel
sure that the family's natural grief is tempered somewhat
by the fact that the sailor made the supreme sacrifice
for his King and Country. The deceased sailor, who was
in his 36th year, leaves a widow who resides in England.
A total of 26 Jerseymen are believed to
have lost their lives in the Naval Battle of Jutland
on 31 May 1916 and on HMS Hampshire which sank on 5
June 1916 after striking a mine off the Orkneys.
