NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Monday 8 April 1918
Lieutenant A B Grellier Wounded and Missing.
It is with sincere regret we state that late on Saturday
Mr & Mrs A F Grellier of Bond Street received a
telegram conveying the sad news that their only son,
2nd Lieutenant Arthur Berteau Grellier of the Lancashire
Fusiliers, was reported wounded and missing on 27 March.
Young Lieutenant Grellier was an Old Victorian and whilst
a Premium Apprentice at the GWR Engineering Works at
Swindon enlisted under the Derby Scheme, he being then
19. After training with the Artists Rifles OTC he was
gazetted 2nd Lieutenant in the Lancashire Fusiliers
and proceeded to France on 16 October of last year.
The gallant soldier was keen on his profession and had
evidently a promising career before him. He has scores
of friends and acquaintances in the Island who will
join us in expressing the hope that the parents will
receive more favourable news in the very near future.
